As beloved and missed Mr. Andy Palacio stated in his winner speech at Womex in 2007, I too believe in 'music with a higher purpose that goes beyond simple entertainment'.

That of transmitting a culture or ideas, of preserving values of traditions, renewing them in personal ways, being a way of expressing all parts of humans history, present situation and visions. 

Music is a bearer of messages and transmits feelings of inclusion, awareness, consciousness, protest and love.

And music is, as all artistic behavior, a way to express freedom.

Carolina Vallejo 



We love culture. We believe that intercultural exchange developes humanity in a positive way. We believe in that each one of us is an asset to the world and that art contributes to make our lives better.  Human rights is a must, also when it comes to business. We speak English, Spanish, French, Greek, Danish and Swedish. We work internationally. We represent a range of top musicians, from various parts of the world.
