Berlin’s soundtrack

nobis

While Berlin offers an appealing base for many musicians to live and play, others are drawn again and again for just a few weeks or months in the year, bringing fresh sounds to Berlin’s ever-changing music scene. “We’ve just sold the most CDs ever since we got to Berlin,” Emi Kashiwara, one half of the Japanese duo known as The Nobis, told me after finishing a synth set in Mauerpark a few days before they were due to leave the city again. “People here really listen a lot,” she added. Much of Berlin’s appeal lies in its atmosphere of creative spontaneity where anyone and everyone can put their artistic ambitions to the test. Buskers not only provide an unmistakable soundtrack to this unique city, but also, for me, a reminder of why I came. [Source]
