the workshop was organized by concertina hay the head of the current institute. megalo got to know the students a bit talking about all sorts of things from the difficulties musicians have in germany to family problems and record companies. finally it was time for some music. then megalo showed the music students what he could do to with a spontaneous fall to run king and a rhyming. i
