Dear readers,

In a year that is no longer young but certainly not yet old, we wish you all the best: spirit, strong nerves, and peace of mind.

On Saturday, 3 February, tar master and composer Elshan Ghasimi will present her new program for the first time with jazz trumpeter and electronic musician Philipp Püschel at the feel.jazz festival at the Hafenklang in Hamburg.

Tickets and more about the festival, which starts on 2 February, can be found here.

We look forward to welcoming you to our events in the new year, engaging in dialogue on-site, celebrating our cultures, and immersing ourselves more deeply in them.
