At first glance, it may seem absurd to concentrate on the desert at a festival that revolves around water. A closer look reveals that it is, in fact, only right. For where else does water – or the lack of it – play a more important role than in the deserts of this world? WASSERMUSIK 2011 is dedicated to the desert, both as a real place and as an imagined place – with concerts, discussions and films. And with stars such as Khaled, Tinariwen, Giant Sand, Amadou & Mariam and new musical discoveries.
