Video release ¨ One way ¨
“One way is a journey with no return, it only goes one way, such as life, time, like everything. You can never step into the same river twice. We, together with my producer Patrick Petruchelli, tried to give everything we could to the wonderful and intense journey that is recording an album. We were very lucky to be accompanied by great musicians from all parts of the world who gave their best. One way is a journey of melodies, notes and accords that sparks a sequence of images representing what we all carry inside: reflections of our own life”. Rodrigo G Pahlen
