Music Safari

6. Mai 2021, 13:58

Why not mix up the music of different communities who live around Vienna? We bring normally boring public space to life, on a small budget, & give a Grätzl something to talk about. For Music Safari, dj Eugene (from London) plays open air, with music reflecting all the people who live nearby. With his city-storytelling group Whoosh, he takes locals on a dance adventure. After visiting a local school for research, the dj entertains the neighborhood with Turkish, Bosnian, Ukrainian, Roma, African, Bollywood & Austrian tunes. Anyone can ask for a special song they’d like to hear. Residents start to dance, & are surprised to hear ‘their’ music played by a Brit, & alongside other styles. It allows local children to lead the dancing, showing each other the right steps & moves. It helps validate their culture, & shows that those tunes don’t just belong at private house parties or weddings, but also out on the streets of Vienna.
