The event could not be called otherwise: Die lange Nacht der Musik , ” the long night of music”.

The event was held in every corner of the city, the center, Schwabing, south west and eastside. Concerts could be seen in many places such as in cultural institutes, pubs, restaurants, clubs and even some churches have opened their doors to the music.

My tour starts at the Gasteig, a cultural center open to the public,the place where the Munich Philharmonic plays usually and the place for general education.
Here a band played called Stockwerk orange played Brazilian music.
The music transported the audience to distant and wild landscapes of South America with samba, reggae and influences from Funk, Ska and Drum and Bass.
