Jonas Völker is a percussionist and research assistant at the Hochschule für Musik in Freiburg. Within his promotion he analyzes the processes of inter cultural music teaching. Respectively this workshop aims for the learning of playing techniques and rhythms as well as their practical implementation in Arabic songs.

In the choir project „Sa´id“ with Samir Mansour, the same pieces will be arranged. The choir and the drumming group will join for 1,5 hours and together they will discover the whole dynamics of Arabian songs.

Samir Mansour and Jonas Völker unite different perspectives and create an outstanding musical and inter cultural experience!

On Sunday, the 29.07. at 18.00 p.m., a common performance will take place during a short concert in the church “Freiburger Christuskirche”.

Knowledge in Arabic language and/or notes are not required. The songs will be displayed in Latin writing.
