With lockdown easing, we are happy to take this opportunity to invite you to a very special occasion, our Summer Kiezsalon (im Exil) at Kunsthaus Dahlem. We are presenting four concerts, including three record release shows. We have invited legendary sitarist Ashraf Sharif Khan from Pakistan performing with Viktor Marek of Hamburg’s Golden Pudel Club, Berlin’s singer-songwriter Clara Hill, German-Sorbian theremin and voice musician Carolina Eyck, and UK lyricist and musician, L.A. Salami.
London’s L.A. Salami is a rare breed of musician, the type that the world has been craving since the height of storytelling legends like Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Neil Young. Not quite folk, not quite indy, not quite common and certainly not boring, L.A. Salami’s lyricism and voice are hypnotic.
Viktor Marek’s elusive “Sufistep“ meets Ashraf Sharif Khan’s masterful sitar performance. Pakistani Music Hall Of Fame inductee, Khan, like his father and grandfather, belongs to the Poonch Gharana Sitar tradition. Viktor Marek is an artist renowned for the rhythmic finesse and ability in his real-time collaborations. Marek is co-operator of the Golden Pudel Club, Hamburg.
Berlin-based singer, songwriter and producer Clara Hill has shifted styles fluidly throughout her life. She writes, produces and performs with a varied array of artists. Hill will be performing from her upcoming album ‚Shine‘, the first that the has written, composed and produced entirely herself, inspired by the 60s and 70s psychedelic folk movement and Brazilian ‚tristeza‘.
German-Sorbian musician and composer Carolina Eyck was introduced to the theremin by her parents at the age of 7. It was not long before she was known as one of the best theremin soloists worldwide. Her solo show ‚Theremin & Voice‘ breaks new ground using a surround sound system, allowing her theremin to break free and fill the space.
For our summer salon in August, we will host the Kiezsalon at Kunsthaus Dahlem and its beautiful sculpture park. The Kunsthaus, which is located right next to the Grunewald and near the Brücke Museum, is an exhibition space dedicated to postwar modernism in East and West Germany.
