“We will be taking you to a “virtual” journey from beautiful Venice, where you can hear the captivating sounds of the canals and lend an ear to some passionate love stories. Then, we will follow the sweet breeze of the Mediterranean and sail to Anatolia/Turkey where you can hear some enchanting middle Eastern tunes set on folk tales of the people (Armenian, Persian, Azerbaijani, Greek and Turkish) who called Turkey/ Anatolia home for centuries. Hope you join us!”
