Sound engineer Gabriel Grote, visited Dhaka twice in July and in September 2018 for two Spund Engineering Workshops.


My first impression of Bangladesh…
What chaotic traffic.

Things in Dhaka that remind me of my home town …
The city vibrates and is immensely inspirational.

Something that caught my attention in Bangladesh (and that is rather unusual in Germany)…
Eating with one’s fingers.  At first, completely unfamiliar. But later I really enjoyed it, a special experience. And the goat meat – very, very delicious.

A memory of Bangladesh that will stay…
The people. They impressed me greatly, the gratitude and friendliness. I was deeply affected.
