Global Drums

presented by World Wide Music

Duo Safar

With a drum set, percussion and classical Persian instruments, Jawad Salkhordeh and Jacob Przemus embark on a musical and experimental journey between the modern and the traditional, from the Caspian Sea to the Copacabana. A thoroughly cosmopolitan mix of powerful rhythms and exquisite sounds that result in the emergence of a new global sound. Whether as a duo or with musical friends, this concert helps soothe wanderlust and will be a very special listening experience.

20 | 21 | 22 JANUARy 2017 | 2nd Global Drums Festival


From the 20th – 22nd January 2017 Berlin's WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN will be presenting exciting excerpts from the broad spectrum of the transcultural percussion scene in Berlin at the 2nd GLOBAL DRUMS FESTIVAL – focussing on percussive music from Arab countries. The festival will be accompanied by two percussion concerts from our World Wide Music series: on 13th January 2017 GORDON ODAMETEY & ABAATU BAND and on 27th January 2017 DUO SAFAR!

The GLOBAL DRUMS FESTIVAL represents the variety of percussive music in the different art and cultural settings of Berlin, and with it the WERKSTATT DER KULTUREN cultural institute, founded in 1993 in Berlin, once more revisits its raison d‘être: the celebration of cultural difference and diversity – in one of the most rapidly transforming cultural cities in Europe.
