Night Grooves starts off this edition with Canadian folk band The Strumbellas. They sing their hit "Spirits", the song that made their international breakthrough. The second guest on our music program is rock musician Gil Ofarim.
Gil Ofarim must have inherited his musical streak from his Israeli father Abi Ofarim, who was a famed pop singer and chansonnier in the 1960s. Gil will be performing his song "Ein Teil von mir” (A Part of Me), a premiere for Night Grooves, and the most emotional one to date: Gil dedicated it to his recently deceased father. A highlight of the show is a cover version of "Hotel California”. Gil Ofarim and The Strumbellas sing the Eagles hit live on our stage. Again, we come to you from the house designed by Hans Scharoun in the 1930s: Haus Schminke in Löbau, Saxony.
