Strohlife is a blog about the variety of action carried out within the framework of the Stroh project.
Its aim is to share our musical instruments’ “moments of life”, the encounters that are concentrated around them. It is also an occasion to have a look on the other Stroh-type instruments (that sound) all around the world.
If you have any link with/If you are in anyway involved with these instruments, if you have already crossed Song of the Horns on tour, you can suggest a content proposal for an article of this blog, we would be delighted to hear from you and to share it here.
To discover the latest blog articles and news about the company, let’s subscribe to our mailing list.

Have a good read!
