Outernational | Songs of Wounding | Solidarity concert for Ukraine

I just say THANK YOU

Allianz Kulturstiftung and Outernational in cooperation with Akademie der Künste Berlin and inm - initiative neue musik berlin e.V. are organizing a solidarity concert for Ukraine: Our thoughts are with all the sufferers of this war - inside and outside the country. Because the war against Ukraine is at the same time a war against Europe. The focus of the evening is the Outernational project "Songs of Wounding" with the Ukrainian singer Mariana Sadovska. In an extensive research, the singer and performer has made audio recordings in Ukrainian villages, exploring various singing techniques forgotten in the collective memory.Composer Max Andrzejewski has set these to new music in close dialogue with Sadovska. In addition, singers Viktoria Leléka and Ganna Gryniva will perform Ukrainian songs. Accompanying the musical part, literary and artistic voices from the region and Germany will set an example of cross-border solidarity. Among others, the author Navid Kermani will be present.

This will be followed by a discussion between Berlin's Senator for Culture Klaus Lederer, the conductor and activist Vitali Alekseenok and Esra Kücük, Managing Director of the Allianz Cultural Foundation, on funding and support opportunities for artists in exile.
