The five Berliners sing in five different languages and play 55 exotic instruments. They tell adventurous stories about the Malwon oceans. About the blues of the blue kangaroo, about the pirate bride Yolanda, about gigantic buffets and weeping angels.


Important questions are asked and perhaps answered: What is happiness? Who cooks the best KNISHES in the world? What happened at Gran Bufet? Who is Yorgi?

In the 17th year of its existence, the Berlin world music event presents its kaleidoscope of Eastern European klezmer music, Balkan grooves, cumbia and polka with unadulterated enthusiasm and a global sound from circus to Berlin popular songs. Not only does it sound good, but it is also extremely danceable.

Shmaltz invite you to the island they brought with them, to a strange world, to their self-created paradise: Malwonia!
