ALL I NEED ... is Music

A modern mix, made of traditional sounds and instruments

All I Need is Music

Building on its "ALL I NEED" global platform, Hennessy joined forces with Universal Music for Brands to create a competition for young musicians from different countries.

The concept: using local traditional instruments as a baseline, emerging talents turn familiar sounds into contemporary beats, vocals and mixes. Meet some of the ALL I NEED music makers from Central Asia and the Caucasus.
