Eric Stern


Eric Stern is the NorthWests's own premiere operatic tenor, accordionist, pianist, composer, and consummate showman; an unparalleled devo with incendiary stage presence and devilish virtuosity. Eric Stern has appeared with The Decemberists, Pink Martini, Balkan Beat Box, on NPR, and performed at the Kennedy Center, The Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, Joe’s Pub in NYC, and internationally from Paris to Poland. Eric Stern is best known for being the founder and artistic director of Vagabond Opera, an ensemble that has achieved worldwide success. Vagabond Opera was created in 2002 by this U.S. and European-trained opera singer and composer. Then disillusioned with the classical opera world, Stern created a new context for opera: Performance on a more intimate scale incorporating not only opera but elements of Weimar Cabaret, Arabic and Balkan forms, and the original music that springs from the ensemble’s fertile creative work.

DJ Ipek "Eklektik Berlinistan"


Ipek is one of the hottest DJanes of the Berlin club scene and as internationally known Queen of “Eklektik Berlinistan” not in vain titeled as the "master of ceremonies of cross-cultural understanding"(Daniel Bax - TAZ).

The internationally renowned She-Jay Ipek Ipekçioglu, publisher of the award-winning Beyond Istanbul CD series at the record label Trikont and, among others, Curator of the Beyond Istanbul concerts at Ballhaus Naunystraße in Berlin, is known for her seductive fusion sound & dance music from Turkey, OrAsia and the Balkans. In her sets, she refers to folk electro fusion, Gypsy Funk & Break Beats & Pop, House & Minimal and Berlin Electro.

Ipek takes her audience on an aural journey through different cultures of the Middle East, the Balkans and Turkey with carefully planned escapades to the UK and the USA. Her mixes provide surprising breaks to the steady course of club music today.
