Dear JPFolks,

It was a sobering moment when we learned that our piece "Alchemy " won the "Best World Music Song 2009" award. We are quite stunned! The news has simply overwhelmed us.

The JPFolks recognition serves as a very powerful afirmation to continue our work, despite all the hardships, trials and tribulations.

Our work is all about feeling, this award suggests that perhaps we have succeeded in touching people with our music.

It is difficult to express how much this award means to us... thank you so very much for creating such a society and such an award. It really does make a difference in our lives.

Thank you, again.
In music and peace,

Tarik & Julia Banzi
