The SONGLINES project traces the paths of songs and their stories and, together with musicians and artists from Nürnberg, the region and Europe, develops an interactive and participative cartography of song.
Songs shape cultures, create identities and bring people together. Above all, they draw maps that describe our outer and inner worlds. SONGLINES wants to get to the bottom of these maps to ultimately find out more about what touches us, moves us and, best of all, connects us.

Singers and musicians from various genres and nationalities meet at a three-day sound workshop to get to know each other, to experiment, learn from each other, work together and develop new things. The workshop results will be presented in performances at the Germanisches Nationalmuseum on 22 March 2020.
The topic takes us to the Iberian Peninsula and the Middle East. The participants sing in many languages: Galician, Catalan, Latin, Aljamiado, Arabic and Persian and explore many different styles of music.
The workshop will be led by renowned singers and musicians:
- Shabnam Zamani
