Kerala is an indian state on the malabar coast in the southwest of the subcontinent of india. In one of the worst floods in 100 years, more than 200 people lost their lives there in august, hundreds of thousands were left homeless. Some of the sisters working in eggolsheim have family members who are directly affected.

"That's why we spontaneously decided to hold a benefit concert", the speakers of the four music bands declare. The concert was a great success. A total of more than 70 musicians performed in the sanctuary of the st. St. Martin's church.

"Together we are strong"

With the common march "united in harmony" the benefit event started under the motto "together we are strong".

After the burial by heinz hanna, the individual bands performed one after the other, and finally joined together for the song "wir musikanten" to reunite.

After long applause from the audience, the united musicians performed "the bohemian dream" one more encore.
