In our first episode of the sound of urbanana: TALKS! our author Ole is talking to singer and songwriter, Maxim. Maxim grew up in the area of Siegburg, Königswinter and Bonn, the former capital of Germany. Close to the Bundeshäuschen, an old café at the Rhine, where high-class politicians used to spend their lunch break, Ole meets Maxim.

Maxims music is influenced by folk, hip hop and French chanson and of course – urbanana. His last album, “Grüne Papageien” (green parrots), was produced close to the place of Maxim’s and Ole’s encounter.
