With "Anatolian goes Jazz" they toured across northern Germany, bringing together a wide variety of people at their concerts - and that's exactly what they want to achieve now on October 19 from 6:00 to 8 p.m. at the concert in the Bazaar of Nations at infa. Because this year's supporting program of the trade fair has the motto "Music connects".

Jazz enthusiasts and migrant people celebrate diversity in our society at the German-Turkish friendship concerts of "Anatolian Goes Jazz". The Hanoverian singer Ayda Kırcı presents with her ethnojazz band and Turkish folk songs (so-called Türkü songs) in Western jazz garb.

Helge Adam is one of the most virtuosic pianists in northern Germany in the field of jazz and pop and has already been active nationally and internationally. He is a lecturer at the Hanover University of Music, Drama and Media (HMTM) and the Technical University of Braunschweig. For more than ten years, Helge Adam has led the "All Generation Bigband" (formerly the Youth Bigband Hannover).

The Turkish-born singer Ayda Kırcı was born and raised in Hanover. Together with her band Shanaya, she created the music genre Migrant-Pop (abbreviated Mig-Pop). Mig-Pop is German-language pop music with an oriental influence. In the band, migrants can experience identification with music in the German language and sounds that are familiar to them. Ayda Kirci is committed to the equality of women and all ethnic groups living in Germany, to an open society, to a strong democracy and the cohesion of a diverse society in Germany.

Türkü music are Anatolian folk songs that almost every person in Turkey can sing along with. They are a tribute to humanity, melancholy and happiness.

Whether from Central Anatolia, the West Coast, the Black Sea or Eastern Turkey- Each region has its own style of Türkü songs. They are poetic, critical, build bridges and plead for friendship.

Look forward to a rousing German-Turkish friendship concert on October 19.
