Ata Canani & KarabaOzan: Ata Canani & Karaba"It is Ata's song of the century, "German Friends," it it it seems from today's perspective like a prophecy: "And the children of these people are divided into two worlds - I am Ata and I ask you, where do we belong now?" In a condensate of words, it describes a state of mind and feeling that still characterizes so much sixty years after the "guest worker recruitment agreement": Debates, scandals, discourses and the everyday life of many people.
" A prodigy on the bağlama (saz), Ata Canani single-handedly invented Turkish rock'n'roll in the late 1970s, singing in German and reflecting the discrimination and harsh living conditions of Turkish "guest workers" in socially critical songs.After years of relative obscurity, Ata was catapulted back into the spotlight of the music-loving public in 2013 when his song "Deutsche Freunde" was one of the standout tracks on Trikont's groundbreaking "Songs of Gastarbeiter" compilation. Ata's debut album "Warte mein Land, warte" was released in May 2021 on Fun in the Church and received rave reviews - see selected press links below. And the man himself subsequently teamed up for live concerts with Munich's hottest young combo Karaba. This jazz-kraut formation lets the listener slide into the world of progressive krautrock.OzanAta Canai.

Discourse evening & Film documentary: LOVE, D-MARK AND DEATH

(Aşk, Mark ve Ölüm) by Cem Kaya In the early 1960s, the so-called "Gastarbeiter:innen" (guest workers) from Anatolia and other areas of Turkey were recruited by the Federal Republic of Germany. From the beginning, there was something that always accompanied them and was part of their culture: their music - a piece of home in a foreign land. Over the years, independent musical directions developed in Germany, which did not exist in this form in the mother country. This unprecedented story of an independent musical culture of immigrants from Turkey, their children and grandchildren in Germany, is told in the exciting cinema documentary "Aşk Mark ve Ölüm".The film title "Aşk, Mark ve Ölüm" is inspired by the poem of the same name by the author Aras Ören, which was set to music by the band IDEAL in 1982.
