Original Songs, stories, short films and slides from the fall of the Berlin Wall and beyond, with native Berliner Deta Rayner (accordion/voice) and Australian expat and Berlin resident since 1988 Rob Rayner (guitar/voice). From Balkan to Bluegrass, Polka to Punk and Klezmer to Cabaret, this is the unadulterated truth about the dramatic post-Wall banana shortage, East German Country and Western harmonica production and Stasi-assisted sound checks, all from a uniquely German/Australian perspective.
Cabaret sensibilities and trademark soaring harmonies inform Rob and Deta´s performance in a funny and moving account from two musicians unwittingly caught up in one of the most significant events of the 20th century.
Following a successful Australian tour in 2013 (generously supported by the Goethe Institute), this truly unique show is currently being performed in Germany to mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
