Burkina by bus – Banda Internationale at Operndorf Afrika on the 11th October

A tour of the Dresdner Banda Internationale in the home country of one of their new musicians Ezékiel Wendtoin from Ouagadougou / Burkina Faso.

Due to the intensive exchange and the close cooperation with musicians from many different cultures as well as the experience gained in the last two years with intercultural, music pedagogical work with children and adolescents, they now want to support cultural education projects in the country of origin of one of their musicians: The tireless commitment Ezekiel Wendtoin, both in his native Burkina Faso as well as in Dresden, through music to participate in democratic and cultural processes, has led them to undertake a project trip to Burkina Faso and a bridge between Ouagadougou and Dresden – country of origin and new home – to beat.

On the journey, they not only want to get to know their country, but also to contribute to bilateral cultural exchange between the continents. On site, they would like to establish contacts with organizations, initiatives, local musicians and, above all, children and in Dresden, as part of our workshops to report.

We are very happy to welcome Banda Internationale in this context for a workshop and a concert at Operndorf Afrika!
