Guest: Karin Jana Beck and Matthias Gerber
Karin Jana Beck and Matthias Gerber have been on the road as ‘Folkduo Duenda’ for over 20 years with songs and music from different cultures and spiritual traditions of our earth, enlivening festivals, celebrations and rituals. They have published four double CDs with songs to sing along and sing yourself – and are also co-initiators of the sociocultural Swiss Sing- and Peace Project StimmVolk.ch – helping to build bridges (with the big choir “La Paz Cantamos” in Bern). In their seminars and workshops; singing in community choirs with refugees at festivals and public events, they repeatedly experienced how singing together creates a powerful vessel in which life can be seen in all colors and shades. They are fascinated to combine singing and music with life again, with all there is to celebrate and mourn. This creates a living, community-oriented everyday culture as an addition to the more popular “high culture”.
