Meeting of Intercultural Musicians with an Open Jam Session

"1001 Beats between Bonn and Babylon" (1001 Takt zwischen Bonn und Babylon) is a transcultural music project with a total of 45 interactive offers, workshops and events. It promotes intercultural encounters and social coexistence in diversity by building musical bridges between the Orient and Occident. The focus is on putting together an ensemble of German and “Oriental” musicians, and practicing integration through music.


6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Monthly interactive offers for intercultural music making and singing with an open jam session. By making music and singing together, existing and new residents of Bonn come together to promote intercultural dialogue through music and the creation of new transcultural forms of artistic expression.
The jam sessions are open and, where necessary, will be supported by a music teacher. A selection of instruments will be made available at the sessions in order to enable the active participation of all musicians and visitors. This will allow people to try out new instruments in a playful way and those, who might have little to no experience in making music, jamming and improvisation, to experience and try out making music together.
Cooperation partner: Pesanggrahan Indonesia e.V.

The event is one of the activities organized by the "1001 Beats between Bonn and Babylon" project. During the course of the 2020 Beethoven Anniversary Year, the project will be building on its networks, offers and measures to form, motivate and promote an intercultural music ensemble composed of interested participants from the target group. The ensemble will prepare a repertoire of songs that will include traditional and modern Arabic, Turkish, Persian and Kurdish songs, as well as transcultural song arrangements and connections with works by Beethoven and other German songs.
