Dear Friends of the frame drum music,

Tamburi Mundi is known worldwide as the most important festival for frame drums, and every year has more and more followers. It has assumed a leading role in the international frame drum scene and looks to future  highlights. Be it the concerts, the workshops of “Tamburi Mundi Frame Drum Academy” or with the successful “Tamburi Mundi Festival on Tour” events in Iran, Italy, Austria, and Turkey, the radiant world wide festival initiated by Murat Coskun brings together international frame drum cultures.

After the successful Tamburi Mundi Festival this year at Festspielhaus in St. Pölten (Austria) as a guest performance, it now opens its doors once again this summer in Freiburg E-Werk. Under the title, “Crossing Borders”, this year’s festival offers nine days of a broad program of workshops, concerts and participatory events, attracting workshop participants from all over Europe, but also from Iran, Turkey, South America, the United States and Canada to Freiburg. Nowhere else will you find such a unique meeting of international master drummers and musicians.
