Musetta – Ophelia’s Song

musetta.gif

Lets see, where to start… I’ve been following Musetta (formely named, “Pan”) for over three years now. I stumbled upon an Italian musical festival for unsigned artistes online and was blown away by how Musetta out-shined the competition (they took first place by the way) and were really in a league of their own. Ophelia’s song is a balled set to blissful electronica. More posts for Musetta to come, stay tuned…
