Deutschlandlieder - Almanya Türküleri (DEU)

Deutschlandlieder - Almanya Türküleri (DEU)‘Gastarbeiter’ (‘guest worker(s)’) is a term inseparably (but not exclusively) linked to Turkish diaspora workers. In 1961 the first emigrant workers from Anatolia arrived to help build the Wirtschaftswunder (West Germany’s ‘economic miracle’). What is overlooked is Gastarbeiter culture’s repository of songs reflecting hopes and homesickness, hard work and hard times, and the growing confidence of strangers in a strange land. This concert unites more than a dozen musicians from across the generations who helped construct an integral part of today’s cultural life in Germany.
