Abendschau on board

As part of this year’s Berlin Culture Summer Festival, the Babylon ORCHESTRA and the Sarahbanda, founded by Sarah Willis, set sail on two rafts on Monday, 14 June, immersing the audience on the shores between Holzmarkt 25 and Funkhaus Berlin in rousing Mediterranean, Middle Eastern and Caribbean worlds of sound. At the landing stages Mercedes Benz Arena/East Side Gallery and Funkhaus Berlin on Nalepastrasse, the musicians enthralled a total of around 3,000 spectators, who danced, sang along and celebrated the Berlin summer despite looming storm clouds. Also on board was a team from the Abendschau from rbb, who were able to participate directly in the action on the Sarahbanda’s raft:

Abendschau from Monday, 14 August 2023, 7.30 p.m.
