Erfindenker rocked the hall filled with young audiences with their groovy German songs. The young music lovers sang, and got down on the dance floor with the band. 

The German band presented a total of 20 songs including 30 Grad, Spring, Erfindenker-Medley, among others. 

Erfindenker line-up features Fabio Niehaus on Keys and DJ , Luka Sommerfeld on Guitar,  Melissa Demissie on vocals, and Caroline Leuzinger on vocals. 

The band performed in Dhaka as part of Goethe-Institut’s regional initiatives, and the band performed in many South Asian cities including Kathmandu, Karachi, Lahore, and various cities in India, and finally in Dhaka. The tour spanned from August 16 to September 21.
