"Land ohne Eltern" (Country without Parents)

  • Goethe Institute San Francisco

Andrea Diefenbach's portrayal of the pain and hope inherent in the struggle of migrants was a touching yet exciting challenge for us at Five Senses Tastings. Since most of the events we present are in celebration of life's most joyful moments, we were grateful to be able asked to program a music tasting that spoke to such an intimate, personal, and powerful life experience. We've selected music from a wide variety of genres to explore the many emotions and realities of migration and immigration, and we encourage the audience to use all their senses to explore and experience this journey together.
