Under the Lantern

The cultural diversity that has found its way to our quaint region may seem threatening to some. Often, there is a lack of compassion and acceptance. But cultures are not impenetrable entities; they have always enriched each other through diversity and dialogue. This project attempts to convey with music what may be difficult to explain with words.

In Unter der Laterne, musicians explore the connecting elements of culture, religion and the music of the Orient and the Occident. Here, the experimental and improvisational approach of coming together plays the key role. Through improvisation we discover common denominators and create a new whole. This sense of community between the musicians is carried over to the audience and becomes tangible in the music.
