International  Ceramic and Music symposium in the Wasserburg Kapellendorf/ Thuringia  from 18th June until 8th July 2006 Fotos mp3, Video Impressionen Kontakt, Sponsoring, Links

Melodies are particular to every folk and infer a cultural identity and inner „home“ – even when geographically distanced. Melodies can be misused for radical nationalism, yet in their entirety they are a universal language of mankind that knows no borders.

„Falk Zenker asked the invited musicians from Bosnia, Serbia and France, to bring a traditional melody to the symposium. Kamenko Kulap, Laurence Bourdin, Bogdan Rankovic and last but not least Falk Zenker himself proved how each had interpreted something different in the words “traditional material” be it a traditional instrument or melody. This was irrelevant as to whether the modus was jazz, improvisation or jam session. They have spent the last weeks playing to each other and improvising. The results of the harmonious collaborations were played in the concert earlier.“
Prof. Dr. Kai Uwe Schierz
