Milad Khawam: Mschatta Lounge Interview on the Eagle Aquamanile


Milad Khawam's melodies are inspired by the Levant. Trumpet and the Arabic qanun combine in the jazzy style of his songs, accompanied by keyboard, bass and percussion.

The 6-part concert series "Mschatta Lounge" opened the museum as a platform for cross-over productions and musical inspiration from the midst of changing societies. The idea was to combine music with works of art to create expressions of global interdependence that would be multi-sensitively perceptible. Six bands were invited to the "Mschatta Lounge" in 2019, each of which interpreted an object from the exhibition in their own musical language.
