‘Here and There’ by Mehdi Khansari

Name: Mehdi Khansari
Location: London
Link: http://mehdikhansari.com

Title: here and there
Description:
I’ve called the tune “here and there” because in the time of recession you don’t where you are with your feelings and emotions (how long the recession will last or on a sunny day everything seems to be fine etc.). “here and there” explores musically these different states of emotions.
