Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions, Bonn’s popular World Music Festival – Over The Border has been moved to September. Organizer Manuel Banha has though put together what he refers to as a ‘Digital Days’ version and it has lots of promise. The concert streams were recently recorded at an audience-less Bonn Harmonie and feature a selection of musicians of the festival supported by a reduced formation of the Local Ambassadors around Roland Peil.
Guests of the Local Ambassadors include Marcus Schinkel (Voyager IV) and Daniel Manrique-Smith (Jin Jim) alongside Gert Kapo, Vincent Themba, Stella Tonon, Naomi, David Joris, Ivo Guedes and Carmen Bown. Guests of the festival will be joined by Sven Hammond with his singer Jared Grant, Noemi Waysfield, Suzana Pais and Boticelli Baby singer Marlon Bösherz.
Tickets for the Digital Days version of Over The Border cost EUR 9.90 for the entire row of concert streams.
For everyone who has already bought a day or whole Festival ticket for this year, you will be able to watch all videos for free if you first apply for a key-code by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
