rosenroth - Kein schöner Land, Habibi

Not a nice country, Habibi* – How does a German folk song sound in the Orient? What happens at a rendezvous of guitar and Arabic lute – the oud? With rosenroth you can experience that old songs can be witty, charming, fluffy, virtuosic, sensual and fresh. Two singers and a guitarist turn all expectations upside down with a love to detail and provide the best entertainment with an exciting mix of both fine and high art. The trio’s programme with songs from „Wach auf, mein‘ Herzens Schöne“ to „Auf einem Baum ein Kuckuck“ is enriched by the oud player Basel Alkatrib’s own contributions. Collaborative musical arrangements unite the cultures. Rosenroth expand auditory and cultural experiences that are as different as the songs in the programme „Kein schöner Land, Habibi! The story of the artistic, cultural and personal rapprochement and exchange was recorded all the way from the rehearsals to the concerts in the documentary film „Stadt – Land – Oud“ by René Schröter.

*Habibi is Arabic for „darling“.
