Synopsis

Parade was a well acclaimed cultural exchange project in the context of the European Capital of Culture 2009 in Linz/ Austria.  It included a combined BaTonga group from Zimbabwe and Austrian artists since the early 1990s.  Ten musical groups ranging in size from duos to marching bands of more than 30 musicians were parading and floating along a variety of routes along the outskirts of Linz.  Music on the move from various origins mixed up the suburb and enhanced it with new senses.  The encounter of the musicians from different sound worlds provided for a very special listening experience, resonating in the urban landscape and re-claiming public space for the arts.
