FETSUM

(DE)

Following the impressive Peace x Peace Festival at the Waldbühne, Fetsum is now more sought after than ever. This quiet, modest and thoughtful artist who is also clearly politically engaged, is invited to talk-shows and panel discussions, and politicians and ministers want to talk to him. Berlin’s current Mayor, Michael Müller, has awarded him the Order of Merit of the State of Berlin.

He has published a book in collaboration with the Vice-President of the German Bundestag, Claudia Roth, “So geht Deutschland – Eine Anstiftung zum Mitmachen und Einmischen” [“This is how Germany works – An invitation to join in and get involved”]), which records their conversations. Fetsum gave an extensive interview to the former manager of the Berlin band “Ton Steine Scherben“ about this country, its history, the constitution, refugees, the shift to the right, human dignity, the German concept of “Heimat” which Fetsum does not consider to be a place, but people. He says that there are too few artists today addressing socially relevant issues and using their popularity to take a stance, and that it is very easy to ignore problems here in this prosperous country.

Yet Fetsum is no politician, but a musician who is socially engaged. And so he has decided to continue his work on his album. As he has been involved in this festival for 16 months, much has fallen by the wayside. He has decided to end this politically eventful year of 2016 on a musical theme. The songs on his EP “Light in a Dark Place”, which will come out in December, were recorded in London and Los Angeles in cooperation with the songwriters and producers of artists such as Adele, Jason Mraz, Robbie Williams, Alicia Keys, Eric Clapton and Gary Clark Jr. The net proceeds from sales of the EP will also be donated to UNICEF. The album will follow in 2017. The journey continues!
