The two blind musicians Parija Masoumi and Thorsten "Toto" Graf are trying to answer that question with their new record.
On that account the two combed through their vast record collections and found The Beatles, a-ha, Johnny Cash, Laid Back, Offspring, Soundgarden and the Violent Femmes to be qualified models. Using these influences and their unique charm really causes the sun to sound!
Whether it is Reggae, Soul, Latin, Pop or Rock - these songs melt into an unmistakeable mix that puts up a smile onto the listener's face. "This record is for being happy.", as singer Toto puts it, "When you listen to it the sun will shine throughout the whole year."
