The music on this album was used as the soundtrack of the cinema documentary "Kairo all inclusive" by Walter Größbauer
The press describes the music of Tiny Tribe as "worldmusic-influenced jazz off the beaten path that captivates the listener from the first note on" (Jazzzeit), "a wounderous world of jazzy-oriental-Indian-Iranian voices" (Passauer Neue Presse), or "an exciting sound between ethno and jazz" (Badische Neueste Nachrichten).
Tiny Tribe has played concerts in clubs and on festivals all over Germany, in Luxembourg, Switzerland, Romania and Zimbabwe, where they collaborated with the Gonamombe Mbira Ensemble.
They also composed the soundtrack for the cinema documentary "Mali and the Art of Sharing" by Walter Grössbauer & Claudia Pöchlauer (Ö, 2009) and performed the soundtrack for Thorsten Wettcke´s film "Sunny" (D 2010, compositions by Florian Zenker).
