Pedro Strukelj: Wassermusik

In July 2008 HKW staged the first Wassermusik. Under the heading “Surf, Seaman’s Songs and Tiki” musicians including Don Tiki, Dori Caymmi, and The Surfaris took to the stage, which back then was erected directly next to the Chancellery. In 2017 Wassermusik is an established part of Berlin’s summer cultural program—reason enough to make the festival itself, now in its tenth edition, the theme. With Khaled, the Barmer Boys, or Los Pirañas, Wassermusik X brings back a number of the artists who have provided special, spine-tingling moments in the past. It will also feature groups such as Orchestre Les Mangelepa or the Orchestra of Spheres, which were considered for earlier editions but were unable to appear for a variety of reasons. As usual, Wassermusik X is not restricted to music: Once again there will be a film program, a word program (this time curated by Flussbad Berlin and dedicated to the theme of rivers), the Wassermarkt market, and even a fashion show.
