Hello friends - welcome to my world of music!
Another personal highlight at the Cologne Philharmonic:
A few weeks ago I was honoured to perform solo, and with different small groups and host a Global Dance Kulture Party afterwards. Please view the official link for more info.
\\\\\\\"Global Dance Kulture XL\\\\\\\", featuring the incredible WDR Bigband and many special guest musicians & dancers was sold out a couple weeks ago at the Cologne Philharmonic. Thank you for the support!!!
Now you can watch a video of the full concert HERE
A few weeks ago, it was already 28 degrees celsius in the sun; on tour with my brothers from New York - Petros Klampanis (bass & voc) and Gilad Hekselman (guitar)... watch our last gig from Girona that week: http://www.ustream.tv/recorded/44982658
April is an intense month... for more info view \\\\\\\"Dates\\\\\\\"!
Here you can watch the full concert of the magical \\\\\\\"Morgenland Festival\\\\\\\", recorded by NDR Television:
This current semester I enjoy my new teaching job at the Mannheim Music University... IÂ´m honoured to be subbing for my former master, Prof. Michael KÃ¼ttner during the winter semester.
Here you can watch a short documentation about my recent work on the daily \\\\\\\"WDR Lokalzeit\\\\\\\" TV show: BODEK JANKE - WDR LOKALZEIT
We are open!
During the time between dec 21st and Jan 1st weÂ´ve inaugurated our centre for culture, music and wholistic health in Przesieka / Poland.
Between Christmas & New YearÂ´s weÂ´ll have the next winter festival with lots of music, yoga, healthy cooking and shaman cleaning rituals.
One of my favourite quotes these days:
\\\\\\\"There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday, and the other is called tomorrow; so today is the right day to love, believe, do and mostly live.\\\\\\\" (Dalai Lama)
A short recent quote from my Guru, Pandit Samir Chatterjee:
\\\\\\\"Music is not a means of competing abilities with fellow musicians to prove oneâ€™s superiority, but is meant to be an offering to the higher spirits, and to them we all are equal.\\\\\\\"
A book that IÂ´ve been reading lately; which keeps me inspired these days:
\\\\\\\"A New Earth\\\\\\\", by Eckhart Tolle
