David Krakauer «The Big Picture»
David Krakauer manages to combine the centuries-old eastern European Jewish music with jazz, funk, hip-hop and classical music to such an extent that, as the Wall Street Journal wrote, you know longer notice the difference between the genres. In his new programme, his search for his musical roots takes him to music and film. In a unique multi-media show, David Krakauer and his sextet interpret themes from 14 classic Jewish films, including «Cabaret», «Fiddler on the Roof» and «La vita è bella».

Youssou NDour & Le Super Étoile de Dakar
In the past 40 years, no other artist has left such an impact on African music as the Senegalese Grammy-winner Youssou NDour. His combination of traditional rhythms and the songs of Senegal’s storytellers, the Griots, with electric guitar, horns and funk sound is legendary. He achieved global fame with his duets with Peter Gabriel («Shaking the Tree») and Neneh Cherry («7 Seconds»). Now he's making an exclusive live appearance at the Wiener Konzerthaus!
