The House of Hearts is a series of Live Music & Banter reflecting the rhythm, the atmospheres and the life we are all currently confronted with. We will be invited in a variety of European Living Rooms, meeting great artists and people, exchange ideas, tell the stories of people who lost their jobs or projects, feature the new ideas & everything that can be learnt from this all.

The guests will perform music, and this will be the Live-Soundtrack of the show. The guests will also talk and exchange, come up with stories, worries or ideas. It is all about music, soul, life in the 21st century and a slice of Renaissance, I guess. Just like the lemon of a drink…
