Oh Europa is a project about love, spread out over a continent, which goes straight to the heart. For the past two years, Action Hero has been roaming Europe in a motor home converted into a recording studio. With every random encounter on the road, Gemma Paintin and James Stenhouse offer strangers the opportunity to perform love songs of their choice. Now, after having travelled 46,000 km and crossed 33 countries, their collection includes songs in more than 46 languages. For this special week at far°, the duo invites you to RadiOh Europa, a radio show that shares this fabulous collection. The radio show is broadcast online at :
Sing your own love song!
Action Hero invites you to take part in this project by performing your favourite love song as a solo, duo or group. All voices welcome! More info
