After walking through the demonstration where people demanded to open the border, we met many people from Kurdistan, coming from Syria and Iraq. We noticed more than one time that some of them had brought their music instruments along.
That made us really interested how they managed to bring the instruments all the way from Kurdistan crossing the sea under these hard conditions to move. Also, we wanted to understand why it was that important to them to be close to their culture which is represented mainly by their music.
We made an interview with Rudi to speak about this and then they played on the instrument and the song with all the pain they experienced. Please note: If you don’t understand Arabic, there are English subtitles. You need to switch them on.
