During the ROOTS&ROUTES Festival 2006 in Cologne 30 participants from Germany came together with 25 young talents and five experts from 7 european countries (France, Greece, Italy, Sweden, Hungary, Netherlands and Great Britain)

A large part of the festival included dance performances, camera work, moderation, rap/vocals and a complete liveband was put together.

As the last phase of the World Cup approached everyone got together and started an intense workshop week. During this week 5 songs, which was a mixture of hiphop, reggae and RnB, were writen, rehearsed and recorded.
A 7 minute choreography containing urban dance elements were created and rehearsed. 3 short documentaries were filmed and edited.
The first highlight was the masterclass with the reggae artist Martin Jondo. On July 14th the young participants performed with a mixture of dance and live music on the red stage of the Summerjam Festival.
