Does being emotional make you weak? Is the edge of the world a point on the map or should we better look within ourselves?
A speech about finding strength in vulnerability and the courage to feel and acknowledge your emotions. 

The warm, clear and gentle voice that sings about people and feelings, not things, with a particular sensitivity and a tone you will surely recognise. Alexandra Usurelu won Best Album of 2015 with "La capătul lumii » and has held for the past 3 years over 300 concerts, rapidly becoming one of the most loved independent artists.

She has a profound love for children and has dedicated time either driving social projects ("In dar pentru copii") or being an ambassador for humanitarian causes ("Nu esti singur").

At the beginning of 2016, Alexandra Usurelu was the only Romanian artist with two national tours held in parallel: ”Povestești și Călătorești la Cărturești” and ”PUR”.
