and new comers for your life in berlin. we're going to start the show with a rep or who is one of germany's biggest music stars despite the fact that we've never seen his face crow doesn't care about stardom and all the hype surrounding his person and that's probably one of the reasons why he chose to play concerts at small clubs on this tour rather than arenas we met up with him at his recent gig in berlin. berlin club might be small but the atmosphere is. keeping it real with his new true tour he wants to go back to his roots after all. i didn't want to lose my bearings i wanted to go back to basics this feeling of clubs
again cigarettes on the floor where. you get a bit i want to revive the nice feeling of the old days so that's why i'm going back to smaller venues ok so some fans are prepared to wait for hours even to below freezing temperatures. we've all got a ticket so what are you standing in line for so that we can be at the front. it's warm and cozy and. doesn't mind the fans getting right up close to him but when it comes to his music he wants to be free. never only done rap or pop or rock i've always been free i don't want to be pigeonholed anywhere. at all. when he posted a clip for his song easy. to
fame immediately. but. he coined a phrase for his mixture of. and named his debut. that's now sold over five hundred thousand copies to the trains media a designer. hides his face he wants to remain anonymous on stage but also when he removes his panda mask. i like the mask and i like that i always look good in it and yet i wouldn't want to perform or appear in public without it. the disc on his wall or whatever. close motto is take it easy it seems to have worked for him he's received countless
awards including the echo and is now a huge star. and his recipe for success is pretty simple no time himself in knots for fame. he's on knows the time got nothing to do other than philosophize about life about things and ideas i just scribble thing. i don't need to put bricks on top of each other punching holes unstable things together. i can just spend the whole day looking into space and thinking about the order goes into it's my job of course was wonderful. but it might become a bit more stressful for crowe later on in the year in the summer he will be playing festivals and his stay true to our big concert halls will kick off in november. we found the female equivalent of. folks no one knows who the rep you had the fox is
but we do know that on to folks is one of the pops up and coming stars is more on our new releases. the women's forum the german rap scene. from flensburg and northern germany has been making music for more than four years her debut album story comes out at the end. much. to. keep. the. others latest single. has biblical overtones to harold's his second album source it's due to be released at

just like michelle you showed to our next artist also shot to fame practically overnight the german singer has a billion i have no one as dina is a superstar in uganda she has no qualms playing in front of fifty thousand people at festivals here's the unusual story of an exceptional artist. this is the music video of the song conclude the case of the afro pop to new song
in luganda one of uganda's national languages. has made a name for herself as a pop star in the east african country of uganda what does that actually mean. i don't really know i don't have a definition of. love but my songs are on the radio on t.v. people recognize me in the streets and i've already met all the successful people and have sung on big shows. of course and trolls. all though do you know spends most of retirement uganda these days we meet her in berlin where she's just graduated in social work she's also written a book about her unusual career the city to live a service to humanity as it was very important to me to tell my story myself and it really is very autobiographical fights i told it's about what's happened since
party twelve but i also wanted to give a more modern and hopefully more realistic view of an african country i was awfully conscious on the side i experience many things in uganda that many people in germany can't even imagine so much forgotten for stone time in two thousand and twelve sabrina harris spent a year doing voluntary service in rwanda a neighboring country of uganda. later she traveled around east africa and particularly like the ugandan capital kampala and that's where it started she was at a bar where they. played live music and she began to sing a music producer happened to be in the audience going on that my heart out and he just asked almost jokingly whether we should record something and i said yes and we went to a studio and wrote a song in luganda and off we recorded it made a video and posted it online and big media organizations were already winning the next day and then it all went really fast that's clouding i. was her first song became
a hit in twenty fifteen. hours. means bring him to me and luganda pretty european singers singing are now frickin language could also be a source of criticism. helped a lot of gods and i first i think that people understood really fast that i wasn't just doing this for fun it was that it's not like i just turned up and started making music like them and. they understand that i'm doing it seriously that i live here and want to live here i understand what i'm doing and that i've got some background knowledge that's why i don't think i've ever experienced any hostility i've been received very positively was it even found. cannot live off the proceeds of her music she's hoping to expand her fan base enough for a girl and her talent for learning languages helps
a lot. such as after. there are few more languages coming in twenty eighteen i'm going to release a song that's with healing i was recently nominated for two wards in uganda and i'm really excited about that the ceremony is in march and i hope there will be lots of concerts i've also been invited to a few festivals in germany which is nice and there's a lot happening and i'm looking forward to the state a few times if you know i want to go. then we can look forward to dinas new video which is currently in the making. what's a story next we're on to something weird and wonderful previously known as the bass player of his new wave band book team will blink has gone solo he takes us on

a bands to keep an eye out for. the story oh. the shots. in the stands powerful and loud. rocking berlin's lido and the three musicians are happy they're just doing what they have to do. when we shout into the mike with everything we've got all trying to unite very loud beautiful melodies with very hard music as a takes of the lyrics come from very deep down and goes straight to the core for us to be speaking of we consciously broach difficult and unpleasant subjects that make us angry. stores and you don't have such a vent to be go play tennis or something tennis mean this was what.
the lyrics are often about inner conflicts but they also talk about politics such as the rise of the far right in germany the band wants to be active and their fans appreciate that. when i've been a fan from the start of the day we came all the way from switzerland they're amazing on stage just from the outside it's simply fun. to play the concert they explored the german capital the bands from often is made up of singer chris tell bass player david frings and drummer franks. they wrote the first song of their first album when they first played together in twenty twelve the band's name came to them. quickly to this. what's there was during our first rehearsal we had a feeling that the music sounded like if your big and powerful and forceful but also beautiful somehow. we jokingly made
a word association and said it sounds like you're. asking for fuel it. sounds like it was all simple the band had to work hard for their success at the beginning they once played to an audience of five. since released three albums in six years and played a lot of gigs earning the respect of critics and fans alike. and they will continue singing in german even though this means they might never be huge internationally but writing in english is not an option.
this is going on this is exactly the form of expression that we need much more direct and raw to write in german. i final soundcheck in the late afternoon at the lido there are still five more hours till. the three can't get live off their music but they're glad to have found their vocation. and we enjoy every little bit of it is a side business like a big canvas that you can paint every bit of you can really let off steam it's creative it's really great to be able to do something like this with no other. their passion is definitely contagious the band is going on tour in switzerland in april and there are a lot of festivals planned for the summer here on the up and up.
