Appoint Commercial
Recently Jonas recorded some music for a new commercial of Appoint. Most of the time Jonas is asked to collaborate in pop, rock or world music, but this time he went solo playing a classical Bach-like tune. A very nice piece of work, you might say. The commercial is often broadcasted by SBS6, NET5 and Veronica.
