We’re thrilled – our documentary in co-production with ZDF “The Pianist of Yarmouk” (directed by Günter Atteln and Carmen Belaschk) has been awarded with the Grand Prix at the International Television Festival Golden Prague! Here’s the jury’s explanation: ” ‘Ayham Ahmad: The Pianist of Yarmouk’ demonstrates the power of music to sustain an individual through horrific suffering. Reveals with elegance and subtlety, the use of music to make peaceful protest and to inspire others who are going through intolerable suffering. The film creates a sense of hope and optimism despite the tragic circumstances that are presented, because of a young man’s undying spirit, his love of music and his use of music to communicate a crucial message to the world.”

Rudolstadt Festival is Germany’s foremost festival of roots, folk and world music. Held in the central region of Thuringia, it’s also one of the top world music festivals in Europe. It takes place annually from the first Thursday in July until the following Sunday and attracts up to 25,000 people daily.
Rudolstadt Festival dates back to 1955, when the 1st Festival of German Folkdance was organized in Rudolstadt. It evolved into an East German celebration of folk dance with strong East European participation. Following German reunification, in 1991 the festival was relaunched with a completely new concept. Initially a forum for the traditional folk scene designed to bring Germans from east and west closer together, TFF rapidly grew into a world music festival of international renown.
