The Morgenland Festival Osnabruck has dedicated itself since 2005 to the fascinating music culture of the Near and Middle East, from traditional music to classic and avant-garde, jazz, and rock. With its focus on a region which immediately conjures up positive and negative cliche images, the Festival has set itself the goal of counteracting these images with authentic ones. On this recording, Dreyer-Gaido presents one of the currently most exciting Armenian jazz bands in a magnificent live recording of audio guru Walter Quintus.
