Berlin and the 20s: Charleston dress, cocaine, absinthe, monocle, tuxedo, champagne, feather boa, volcano dancing, sophisticated entertainment and nights until dawn, as if each were the last ...

Basically, this only applies to the period between 1924 and 1929. Sigrid Grajek, on the other hand, is concerned with the years from 1918 to 1933, that is, between the two world wars, when under the dazzlingly beautiful "Berlin in the light" surface there is a dark -Bitter page revealed. Although one speaks of the "Weimar Republic", Berlin was the pulsating center. The different life realities of these fifteen years have been documented in a variety of songs and texts with often unwavering humor. Sigrid Grajek combines her selection and creates a musical-literary mirror of the era.
