Hans Breuer (A) / Shepherd, musician

Was born in Vienna/Austria. Both parents were anti-fascist activists, his father was Jewish. His familiarity with Eastern European music goes back to his childhood. He sings with his band WanDeRer in Yiddish, Turkish, German, Hungarian, French, Spanish and English. As a shepherd he opens up the country life to city people. In workshops with children and teenagers he relates his experience as a wandering shepherd, as a musician and poet; with a critical perspective on history he creates connections between different cultures.
