Predrag Mitrović and Aleksandra Paladin
Doctor Predrag Mitrovic and musicologist Alexander Paladin, in their speech, will try to explain how music can be used as medication, in exactly the prescribed daily dose. The application of music therapy is present since ancient times. We can find it in the biblical sources, shamanistic rituals and theological literature. Healing by the music is present in all cultures throughout human history, until now. It is a discipline that accompanied the development of medicine from its beginnings. The application of music in medicine first was defined by the famous ancient Greek philosopher, mathematician, physician and musicologist Pythagoras in the 6th century BC. He noted that "Music is good for the soul and healing to the body."

The campaign has been in motion in Serbia for three weeks; it started on the Facebook page of the volunteer initiator Kiosk Pages Balkan.
