by Walkin' T:-)M

First of all, the Oder River in eastern Germany broke its banks. Then the pole caps began to melt and the ocean level to rise. Now Germany is facing another calamity: the Folk Awards Deluge!

What is the reason for all these awards at all? It is said that the German folk and world music cream shall be introduced to the public in Germany and abroad.

But was it really useful for anyone in the past? Does this overkill bring anything about? What do you think?! (Maybe this is really an immediate consequence of the climate change.)

And what about us? Well, the next FolkWorld issue celebrates our 10th anniversary, and we dare to present you FolkWorld's Best Loved Artists of the past decade ...

See you, T:-)M
