Luna Kafé
The Global Music Inn

Our full moon menus consist of musical dishes from many corners of the world, composed by our world wide web of contributors. A last menu was presented on the full moon night of January 12th 2017, and we're now on permanent vacation. However, every now and then we'll launch some spontaneous, impromptu, improvised or ad hoc articles. Foggy notions, whimsical moves, etc. Watch this space!
