Dear friends, we would like to share a first acoustic version of our new song Salam /Peace, for the end of this year. Wishing peace and freedom for all.
We will also record a new E.P. with our band the beginning of 2024. Featuring new sounds, exciting percussionists, kicked of by an official video. We can't wait to share this with you... The official release will be on the 6th of April in Paradiso Tolhuistuin.
Looking forward to see you in the new year. Blessings to the people who are facing challenging times.
Our recordings and release are supported by the Popkanjers reward - by NH-Pop and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Noord-Holland.
