This website is designed as a sort of multicultural exchange for English speakers for Germany and the cultural and social representations of music. The sight touts its intentions with “Explore music made in Germany!” and “Find out why German rocks!” on the front page. A map with cities in Germany is hyperlinked to jump to different page with facts on each of the cities, and music produced there.
Their contest for the 2010 is “My Favorite City,” inviting the public to submit videos of a city you love. “We’re interested in a very personal portrait of your favorite city….On our website a number of German artists introduce you to their favorite city. We hope that they inspire you to introduce the world to your favorite place,” states the site.
What an interesting way to connect generations of music and internet/social networking young adults!
