In October 2018, El Sistema Greece became an official and autonomous NGO with the support of El Sistema Venezuela (Fundamusical Simon Bolivar) and Sistema Europe.
When I am singing, I don’t think about anything else. The whole world disappears as I sing in front of the people. I absolutely love it.
