For many years, German singer and composer Tabea Mangelsdorf (Tabeah) has travelled to remote and crisis-ridden areas around the globe with a sense of adventure and interest in its people. She studied classical singing in the US, popular music in Germany, gathered stories of the untouchable people in India, and has been in close collaboration with musicians “Favela da Paz” in the once most dangerous slum of the world in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She has toured in Brazil and Germany since 2013. As a musical director, she leads various intergenerational and intercultural choirs, orchestra and band projects, where people from very different backgrounds can meet and dismantle prejudices. She tours with the transcultural Ikatar Ensemble featuring musicians from all over the world every year.
