Our anniversary

Today, Sounds European! is celebrating its anniversary. One year ago, our project was just a dream, an idea, which we decided to give a try and see if it would work.

And it did! A lot of interaction with readers, and even with artists, besides a great number of pageviews, makes us feel we are on the proper path. And this only makes us want more!

We would like to thank every one of our readers for valuing our work and keeping visiting and participating. You are the reason we continue!
