Rarely have I witnessed such a magical birth as that of the Hawniyaz ensemble in the summer of 2012. Since 2005, the Morgenland Festival in Osnabrück has been devoted to the fascinating musical cultures of the Near and Middle East, from traditional music to classical and the avant-garde, to jazz and rock. With its focus on the ‘East’, which brings with it a whole host of clichés, both positive and negative, associated with the region, the festival has set itself the task of opposing these stereotypes with the most authentic representation possible.
