The Morgenland All Star Band unites several of the most outstanding musical personalities from the Near Orient with Jazz greats such as Frederik Köster or Bodek Janke. Traditional Kurdic music meets Uighur Funk-Rock from north-west China and jazz from Azerbaijan. Special guest is the jazz trumpeter Amir ElSaffar, who combines his musical biographical roots - Iraqi Maqam and American jazz: a global sound web full of tension, juxtapositions and surprises.
