This album has been created as a result of the most precious moments with my daughter Nil. So I dedicate this Album to my dear little daugther NIL as a present , to my greatest musician friends, Relatives, Colleagues and my family who were there for me during all these years.
I have collected in my heart and soul many compassion, sympathy and love that I was unable to speak to world of many years.
Therefore, you may find in this album the hidden words inside of me coming into existence through instrumental music.
Thank God for every breath I take with my near family and friends…
