MUSICAL DIALOGUES ON THE MEMORY OF EUROPE
68 virtuoso musicians, who took their inspiration from going against the stream, gathered on a ship.
Coming from the Balkans and the countries along the Danube they played together and explored their cultural traditions. Many special guests from Turkey, Greece, Armenia, Macedonia, Spain, Norway, Irland and other countries came to join them.
What made this festival unique is its incomparable atmosphere of researche and creativity inspired from the memory of Europe and the beautifull mythical river. Guests and participants are immersed in the “Heart” and “Kitchen” of a musical creation, living together and discussing day and night.
“Even though as a river, the Danube tends to divide rather than connect, the Danube Music Festival, sailing on a ship between the Serbian capital of Beograd and the German border town of Passau, goes a long way in compensating for this historic error.”
Ton Maas, Ode Magazine
“The concert is one of the best I’ve heard and it’s followed by a one-off jam session as he’s joined by Bulgarian musicians Theodosii Spassov (on kaval flute) and Petar Ralchev (accordion) and others.”
Simon Broughton, Songlines Magazine
“Pour qui aime les musiques de l’Est, ce festival tient à la fois du banquet de Platon et du bateau ivre de Rimbaud.”
Thierry Sartoretti, L’HEBDO Magazine
