Rainforest – between saving and destroying
A concert – collage with Grupo Sal, Abadio Green, Thomas Brose and Mehrdad Zaeri
With passionate music, visionary boldness and emphasized analysis, the evening invites to a meeting full of knowledge and desire for the topic rainforest . The programme of Grupo Sal „Concert for Amazonia“ touches all senses. It shows the rainforest from very different perspectives: modern Latin American music, political analysis, reports, indigene rituals and live-painting.
The main attraction is the meeting with Abadio Green, the leading representative of the indigenous people of the Tule. Abadio Green speaks in a very personal and direct way about the way of living of his people. He brings about the magic of the rainforest and describes the urgent threat of this habitat. At this „ meeting of cultures“ Abadio Green meets Thomas Brose from the climate-alliance. Green and Brose are at home in both worlds and therefore excellent mediators between the worlds. Green is not only accepted as the elder of his people, but is also lecturer for ethno-linguistics at the University of Antioquia in Medellin. Brose was development worker in Brasilia and today he is manager of the climate – alliance. Both describe their point of view of the fight for the Amazone region and together they draw visions and solutions.
Grupo Sal puts the audience into strange worlds, produces breaks and condenses the atmosphere. The passionate music encourages the audfience not to ignore the topic of the evening, but to be interested in change and creating perspectives for a better living.
