The first question after welcoming "do you have everything for tea with you"?...."yes"! :-) their gas cooker got lost somewhere in the nowhere in europe within the past few days on the tour; bittersweet & foamy green tea is essential in the life of sahara nomads, even here in germany :-)
in between soundcheck and the concert we take the time all together for a shortfeed magazin editior the first time offline and not online :-)
funny shopping trip nearby. Sparkling pre-christmas decoration everywhere, a cameraman is following us, two umbrellas; rainy and windy weather in Berlin. After we returning my friends start preparing the concert, bright & colourful traditional dresses and turbans showing up, they really looking gorgeous, the sons and the daughter of the sahara desert!
ready for the concert?! Mysterious, fascinating sound on the ears! Guitar music in the air like precious, shimmering pearls on a string and the magical rythm of the desert; Roger Willemsen is talking about the life in the desert and Christian Brückner -he´s also the synchron voice speaker of Robert de Niro- beautiful Tuareg poetry.
