Finn Martin (1961-2011), once said about himself:
“The only thing that really motivates me is to build bridges between people, between cultures, between genres.”
For the Irish-Swedish musician, this desire was of inner necessity – in conversations and encounters with people from different countries he had met on his travels to Africa, Latin America Europe and Asia.
The first step to the stage for Soulfoot was in 2003. The show previously named “World Tour” was performed in front of an audience at GOP Variety in Bad Oeynhausen.
In 2010 Soulfoot was performed for the first time on a big stage at “Theatre Fliegende Bauten” in Hamburg/Germany. In September 2011 the ensemble toured in 14 cities in Germany and Austria.
In August 2014 Soulfoot performed at festivals in Austria and Germany before the ensemble went to Nelson Mandela Theatre in Johannesburg (South Africa).
During this tour the artists act also in Soweto and in Alexandra for the kids in the townships.
