December 2023

Again, chance leads Mercedes Echerer to a box. While in the last program a whole life was packed into it, this box poses puzzles and holds secrets. Shukkar, when the cat sneaks to steal the moon, we tell each other our half-imagined dreams. We are who we are, your Chavo? Who is Shukkar and who is Chavo? What does this have to do with the capital of Italy, and why is someone demanding an old heirloom back from it? Your search for answers oscillates between stories of truth and reality...

In this series of scenes and stories, old songs are interwoven in new arrangements and our own compositions, as well as a lot of jazz and swing by and with Adrian Gaspar & Lubomir Gaspar. These unique musicians, brothers in nature and spirit, are together an orchestra, playing nine instruments together.

Arrivederci Roma – a musical tale from Gelem Gelem to Djobi Djoba – get up and dance!
