Award winning violin player, Sofija Longo, is one of the rare artists I know who likes to improvise with every music genre and every possible ensemble. Thanks to Sofija and her crazy idea of arrangements, I started to work on Solo violin improvisation for Hip hop music, after that we started to work on Arab songs, soundtrack of Japanese film “Hana-bi” (exclusive, not for further sale), three beautiful songs for Vocal, Flute and String quartet and lot of arrangements for violin ensembles for her Violin workshop at The District, Abu Dhabi Summer Season.
