Happy New Year! What is your Utopia? For the very first episode of the new year we asked musicians from around the world to answer us this very question – not with words but with music. Because music sometimes is the only language left. It can articulate feelings, complexity and even politics in a way language will never be able to do. We got some musical answers from the Altai mountains in Russia, from the capital of DR Congo, from Spanish Berlin and Arabic Berlin. From the green hills of England, the streets of Moscow and the Caribbean.
Some musicians also sent some words. One who also has a degree in physics for example explains how your body resonates to music and how this is connected to the soul. Another musician is calling for cooperation in a world of global inequalities. And then there are some butterflies.
Check them out and tell us which musical Utopia resonate most with you? And why?
