!! 14 May 2022, 17:00-19:00 in Essen


Dear Friends of Albania,

Albania boasts of its model of religious diversity and tolerance. These values, little known and often misunderstood in Europe, are the basis of a popular philosophy that has developed over the centuries and today represents for Europe a special and highly valued model of coexistence and mutual respect.

We look forward to welcoming you to a festive and musical evening of dialogue with representatives of all denominations from Albania:


on Saturday, May 14, 2022,

from 17:00 to 19:30 hrs

in the Kreuzeskirche in Essen


We cordially invite you!


Admission free!


!! Do you love jazz, blues, Balkan rhythms?


The above dialogue evening will be followed by the unique live concert with the famous composer and singer Dren Abazi & his Zig Zag Orchestra Boys!


Entrance on 14. May 2022:
Staring at 20:30 hrs


Tickets for the concert:
+ 49 178 2455286
