Suzuki Baleno – comment on work

What do you do when your father shows up on a brand new shiny dark blue Suzuki Baleno that you know there’s no way he could have afforded and you are eight?

At the Nordic Music Days her work Suzuki Baleno will be performed by The Riot Ensemble in "Floral night episode" on 30 September at 6:00 and 9:00 PM.
