The Windhund are often embarking on cross-border projects - not only in the geographical, but also in the artistic-musical sense. It is especially the inter-linkage of music and poetry that thereby creates a new dimension of artistic expression. The group has repeatedly engaged with the music world of Africa: Together with the Moroccan singer Kadero, Otto Lechner has founded the Vienna Rai Orchestra, which has made the Arabic influenced music of North Africa establish itself in Vienna. In May last year they played together with Siga & Sekembuke, the Zumari Duo from Zanzibar in several places in Austria from Melk to Vienna after the duo had participated at the Parade where the audience of Linz grew very fond of them. Now the duo has been invited to Austria again to perform with the Windhund at the Linzfest 2010, at the Orpheum Graz and the Porgy&Bess in Vienna.

In July the Windhund will set sail for East Africa where another encounter with the Zumari duo will take place in Zanzibar upon invitation from the Dhow Countries Music Academy.
