German folk songs
These CD contains material which I recorded on extensive world travels.
For me, the main reason for travel is to heighten my sense of belonging to the pageant that is the world. To feel the flow of cultures as one travels around the globe and experience varied belief and value systems, some with a very different attitude to life itself, is at the core of attaining tolerance and gaining a full appreciation of the splendour of this global heritage.
As the cultural pageant unfolds around a traveller, a truly open heart and mind are necessary in order to genuinely feel communion with this wonderful dance'. To me, that is the purpose of travelling.
The push towards economic, cultural and political globalization threatens to smother the cultural heritage that societies have evolved over eons of time. This creeping ‚One World' movement cloaked in so called 'western values' has already weakened or obliterated indigenous traditions in many societies.
May nations find the national resolve to remain as distinct petals of the flower that is our world, so that their cultural traditions, represented in these recordings, may still be alive a hundred years from now!
