In a bid to blend Northeastern music, Shillong folk fusion band, Summersalt, will have special shows at the prestigious Kampnagel Performing Arts center and at Hard Rock Café in Hamburg.
It will also include tourism presentations and performances from local Northeasterners present in Germany and Denmark.
A noted birder from Assam, Abidur Rahman from Jungle Travels India, Guwahati, will also be presenting the birdwatching circuits.
