A new musical concert format full of experiences for the audience is presented by the four-member ensemble “Ears Wide Open”. Pieces, songs and dances from different musical traditions serve as a starting point for improvisations, which are sometimes played groovy and rousing, sometimes lyrical and contemplative. The result is a concert experience in which touching, great music resounds as if by magic, in which everyone is involved – an impressive experience full of sound, interaction and togetherness, which has already enchanted the Berlin audience.
The ensemble consists of the Indian tabla virtuoso Ravi Srinivasan, who is also trained in classical Indian vocal techniques and is a virtuoso whistler. Mathis Mayr participates on the cello, and Gregor Schulenburg plays the flute, Armenian duduk and Japanese Zen flute Kyotaku. As host and expert in collaborative music making and community music, singer Marion Haak-Schulenburg directs the event. The audience is invited to join the ensemble with various instruments, singing, snapping, clapping and existing small instruments.
