GreenWave – this name shared the name of environmental actions that Alexander Cheparukhin held in the late 1980s - early 90s, and his company established in 1991. GreenWave is the production company and team of professionals creating world-class music events.
Among the GreenWave`s projects are concerts of King Crimson, Philip Glass, Kronos Quartet, John Zorn, Michael Nyman, John McLaughlin and Shakti, David Sylvian, and many other musicians who are known as "élite".
