This is the virtually unknown story of Gustav Sabac el Cher. Gustav, a black man with a gift for discipline and music, grew up in Königsberg and became "the only black bandmaster of the German Army." This fact-filled story takes the listener back in time, over 150 years ago. There we meet the controversial Prussian Prince Albrecht, getting to know him via his travel adventures, as well as in war. Prince Albrecht brought many things from Arabia back to Prussia, one of which was a "human gift" from the Egyptian Viceroy Muhammad Ali: a seven-year-old dark-skinned boy.
