Adel Merkouk

We have asked our teachers to recommend a place, some music or an artist. This is what Adel recommends.

Do you have a favourite place in Copenhagen?
”I live on Frederiksberg, not far from Landbohøjskolens Have, my absolute favourite place in Copenhagen. It is a beautiful oasis where the noises of the city seem to disappear into the quiet of the garden. I love to go for a walk here, to read a book or simply sit on a bench deep in my own thoughts, taking in the view. I warmly recommend Landbohøjskolens Have.”

What’s your favourite type of music?
”I love music from the Sahel region. Many exciting musicians and bands from the region have achieved international recognition and have been great ambassadors for the music and culture of the Tuareg people. However, Tinariwen is probably the band that has made the deepest impression on me. I love the complexity and balance in the combination of traditional instruments, electric guitar and choir that you meet in their music. Give it a listen!”
