Join our non-profit initiative and let the world’s musics be your guest!
WORLD MUSIC FILMS ON TOUR After a successful WOMEX 2011 with 13 thrilling movies screened, we are happy to announce the first two being added to the World Music Films on Tour : Dharohar (A Legacy): In 2007 the Jaipur Virasat Foundation, which supports traditional arts and music in Rajasthan, India brought together seven folk musicians from different castes and religions, who would never normally play together. It invited Jason Singh, a beat-boxer from Manchester and Bex Mather, a guitarist and song writer to join the musicians. Other artists from England came out to join the band from time to time. This is the story of a unique collaboration, which transcends cultural and religious divides, and toured India bringing its exuberant blend of traditional folk music and contemporary rhythms to rapturous audiences. See the trailer here My Sweet Canary Roza Eskenazi sang the way she lived, with passion, fire and love. This is the story of three young musicians from Greece, Turkey, and Israel, who embark on an exciting musical journey, to tell the story of Greece's best-known and best-loved rebetiko singer for the first time on film. It’s a journey that will take them from Istanbul to Thessaloniki and to Athens, following the musical trail she left behind. Most of all, it’s a journey into a world that has largely vanished, but whose sounds continue to echo throughout the Mediterranean Basin.

N EWSL ET TER IMZ MEMBER NEWS NEW PRODUCTIONS PREISER RECORDS The Monks Of Stift Heiligenkreuz NEW CD With their choral CD Chant – Music for Paradise (US title: Chant – Music for the Soul) the Cistercian monks of Stift Heiligenkreuz, in the Vienna Woods, landed a huge hit. "All this hype was a challenge for us. After all, we want to be monks and not pop stars. But with God's help we have remained normal. Our community has by no means been weakened by the success, but rather strengthened!" declares Father Karl Wallner, the abbey's press spokesman. For the monks, Gregorian chant is "sung prayer", and as such it should not become a plaything for commercial interests. For this reason they came up with the idea of creating their own music label. They called their new label "Obsculta Music", a reference to the first words of the Rule of St. Benedict: "Obsculta, o fili!", Latin for "Listen, my son!"
The monastery chose the venerable Viennese label Preiser Records, a company that has enjoyed an outstanding reputation both in Austria and abroad for decades. "We are very conscious of the importance this new CD has for the monks. The monks of Stift Heiligenkreuz are burning with enthusiasm to spread the beauty of their spirituality out into the world. We are committed to handling Chant - Amor et Passio completely in accordance with the wishes of the Heiligenkreuz monks, and we consult them about all activities related to this production," explains Martin Pusch, Preiser Records.

The life and the art of Kurt Weill just continues to fascinate, even more than half a century after his death. His music mirrors the various artistic, moral and political contradictions of his time and generation. In Weill’s lifetime his work was most associated with the voice of his wife Lotte Lenya. The “wild” relationship, a succession of deep friendship, separation, marriage and new beginnings, influenced his life and his work. Lotte was the pervasive, propelling energy behind him. And she will be the main person, the narrator, in the documentary by Theo Roos about Kurt Weill. In an extraordinary, unconventional way, Lotte Lenya will show us the journey through the life of this unconventional composer: his way as a leader of the German avantgarde just to his success as American composer of musical theatre on Broadway.
