ECOUTES AU VERT & TROPICAL TIMEWARP team up to bring you two special events featuring late afternoon garden chilling, great live music & hot dance party action with hard bopping djs playing African music and related afro, funky, tropical & disco grooves.
The fun starts at 6 PM with djs in the garden followed at 7 PM by a rare opportunity to catch THE SACRED TRAVELERS band (6 musicians) performing a special semi-acoustic concert under the trees.
Indoors, later that night THE SACRED TRAVELERS (11 musicians) will also play an electric set doing their own very special thing combining Thai Molam, African & Caribbean influences.
They will be followed by BKO QUINTET, a mesmerizing 5 piece band from Mali, that will play their first ever show in Berlin mixing traditional and modern Malian music. They feature great drums, kora, captivating stage presence with story telling & an energetic show that will get you frantically dancing in no time. Don’t miss them, they are one of a kind.
After the concerts, the party continues! Our beloved DJs will spin a fantastic variety of afro music for the rest of the night.
We very much look forward to seeing your smiling faces and happy feet down at our Shrine!
