Few things express the culture and traditions of a country or region in a more direct and intuitive way than a folk song. In Songs of Travel, recorder virtuoso Stefan Temmingh and oud player Bakr Khleifi, together with a group of instrumentalists, embark on a musical journey from Germany to Turkey all the way to Iran. They pass through many landscapes and bring folk songs from different centuries to life in unexpected combinations of sound. The universal language of music tells the story.

Running time: c. 60 minutes / Age 6 and older / In German
