“Barbara Duchow has travelled a lot in her life. As a seeker, lover, fugitive, soulsister, artist, teacher and coach. She has always been confronted with the necessity to acquaint herself with the unspoken. This gave birth to a specific artistic language relating self-story to the foreign story and the distant to the intimate. The intrinsic charm of this special language lies in the distinct, weighted and poetic atmosphere created by Duchows voice. Each listening avoids decisiveness as the listener’s own story finds its place joining the shine of a hiker between worlds”.
