18 november, 2021|Dutch World, Lees/luister terug, Nieuws, Redactioneel|

De 27ste editie van de World Music Expo (WOMEX) van 27 tot en met 31 oktober 2021 was om meerdere redenen gedenkwaardig. Allereerst vanwege het feit dat we weer mochten reizen en van livemuziek uit de hele wereld mochten genieten. Op de tweede plaats omdat Portugal voor het eerst gastland is en op de derde plaats omdat deze WOMEX een opvallend Nederlands tintje had.

23 juli, 2021|

“Storyteller is a wonderfully resonant blend of cultures and textures which hails traditions and innovations alike. Akihary and Brouwer have always shown deep respect for tradition but know, too, that without evolution there is stagnation. Above all, however, the music is a tale of ingenuity, loss, resilience and, ultimately, of triumph.” (All About Jazz) “Released right at the end of 2020, Boi Akih’s newest album Storyteller could just sneak in as the best album of this year, or already be a contender for the most innovative CD of 2021.” “Storyteller is replete with musical tales that are exciting and emotionally charged, but also enchanting, theatrical, dignified and even [...]
