Berlin Bülbül CD release concert and outdoor concerts with nightingales in Berlin

David Rothenberg & Korhan Erel - Berlin BülbülDavid Rothenberg and Korhan Erel will be promoting their new CD ‘Berlin Bülbül’ (Gruenrekorder) with a series of concerts in Berlin, following their album launch concert in Istanbul in April. The first two concerts will be on May 8 and 9 in Treptower Park and Viktoriapark respectively. These concerts will involve David and Korhan talk about and improvise with actual nightingales as well as some guest musicians. Both events will start around 23.00, because, as their name implies, nightingales are nocturnal singers.

On May 8, the meeting point is the park-side exit of the S-Bahn tunnel of the Treptower Park Station. The meeting time is 23.00.

On May 9, the meeting point is Viktorapark’s entrance on Kreuzbergerstraße. The entrance is right across the beginning of Großbeerenstraße. The meeting time is 23.00.

Both park concerts will be free but donations are welcome. There will also be copies of the Berlin Bülbül CD available for sale.

Please feel free to call me in case you cannot find us. If you don’t have my phone number, please send me an email at to request it. And please do not be late as once we start walking in the park, it will be extremely difficult to find us in the dark.
