On 24 July 2022 you can look forward to ENGIN! Together with his band, the singer-songwriter will be on stage in the concert shell in Mannheim's Herzogenriedpark from 3 pm.

ENGIN delivers an uncompromising view of the world and the self. The finger is always in the wound. Profound and danceable singer-songwriter music, brute and fragile. A conglomerate of Turkish psych-rock sounds, blues, indie and chanson elements.

She now plays live in a compact duo formation with Karlsruhe drummer Dave Büchner.
