Mit Echten Singen

30 years after reunification Tanja Krone visits her home town in Saxony and asks: What was actually going on in 89/90? Krone and the musician Friedrich Greiling put the voices of her former companions together with a mixture of pop, rock, techno, disco and trance. A personal concert-performance that offers profound insights into East German realities.
