Alan Ibrahim + Wajdi Abou Diab "From Berlin to Beirut - Intercultural music workshops"
Presented by Music For Identity, From Berlin to Beirut is an intercultural music exchange project that aims to connect the German musical culture with the Lebanese musical culture. Our goal is to build bridges and a communicative environment between the participants, allowing the different cultures to open toward each other and interact together. We believe that music is a critical part of the cultural development process, and by this project we aim to open the doors between the people living in the Middle East and Germany.
These workshops won’t be lectures; they are interactive activities between the participants, as each group will contribute to the workshop with their different musical backgrounds by sharing their stories and experiences. The first theme: The role of music in my culture. The second theme: The role of my instrument in my culture’s music. The third theme: The music education system in my country.
