A cycle of events for the 25th anniversary of restoration of the Villa Decius Renaissance palace and park complex, whose theme is music of the world.

The anniversary events are international concerts of high artistic value, diversified in presentation and musical form.

 "A traveler... A silk cocoon thread used to weave an Isfahan rug. A stranger listening to the sounds of improvisation in Aleppo. A scent of jasmine in the alleys of the old Damascus, wandering between Andalusia and Greece. A butterfly pining for the scent of the Balkans."

Within the cycle Villa Artis: Music of the World, a concert "Traveler" by "Kontakt Choir" conducted by a Syrian musician and composer Wassim Ibrahim will take place on  September 5, at 6 p.m., on the 25th anniversary of restoration of the Villa Decius palace and park complex, in cooperation with 2Act Foundation and the District VII Zwierzyniec.

Kontakt Choir is an open amateur choir driven by ideas of diversity and multiculturalism concerning both presented repertoir and personal composition. The choir is composed of singers of different nationalities who perform in 17 languages. It appeared on Krakow's musical map in spring 2015. Since the beginning, it has been driven by ideas of diversity and multiculturalism concerning both presented repertoir and personal composition.

The choir became a meeting place for professional musicians and amateurs, the old and the young, people of different professions and different passions outside of music, from near and far corners of Europe and the world. Its repertoire covers pieces by great composers such as Bach or Mozart, Renaissance music, film scores, and traditional melodies of the whole world. The choir draws from the diversity of oriental music, but the pieces performed include compositions from Africa, America and the Far East as well. Their concerts transport the audience into a musical journey around the world, make the foreign familiar, and reveal the unknown. In 2020, the choir was awarded with a title of Krakow Ambassador of Multiculturalism A.D. 2019.
