My mission

HitTheRoad is a diverse musical and cultural project designed exclusively for your enjoyment.
It aims to bring examples of classics from a 400-year period—the unique treasures and intellectual pinnacles of our humanity—to a wider audience, promoting better understanding, enjoyment, and ultimately, enhancing the quality
of your life

As part of its presentation, HitTheRoad combines various cultural aspects including history, a touch of theory, literature, and even architecture to heighten your enjoyment and enrich your cultural experience. Join me on this enlightening journey towards a deeper appreciation of our shared heritage.
