“Through this tour, I shall have the great pleasure of presenting some of the finest music of each ASEAN country which has been arranged for the classical guitar -the probably most popular and suitable instrument to bridge the diverse cultures, generations and musical styles of the region,” Eichelmann said.
The tour aims to promote better understanding and cultural exchanges between the peoples of the ASEAN countries through the magic of music.
“I wish to contribute towards understanding by dedicating my forthcoming Thailand tour to the music of ASEAN, unveiling unity and similarities within the great cultural and musical diversity of the ASEAN countries,” Eichelmann added.
