Detailed view

  • In a personal quest for meaning, longing for emotions, talented musician and singer Petra Nachtmanova travels on the roads from Berlin all the way to Iran asking one question:  "Can you teach me a song I should bring back to the west?". On her back, a mysterious legendary instrument opening doors and hearts along the way: the Saz. She passes through the dynamic Balkans, chaotic Istanbul, the immense Anatolia, meets the "Asiks" of Azerbaijan to finally reach the “origins of all” in the mysterious region of Khorassan, Iran. By listening, learning and playing the songs that represent a deep collective memory, she builds a bridge between cultures and time. Little by little Petra understands that her journey has become much more than she had expected. Having started merely as a musician interested in a foreign culture, she slowly grows and becomes a modern SAZ poet herself. Will she now write her own songs, express her own emotions and carry this precious tradition into the future?
