DE RUIMTE BUITEN: King Ayisoba + Bazooka
Sunday, July 15, 16:00, €10*
* Money goes straight to the musicians!
KING AYISOBA brings the traditional kologo music from the Upper East Region of Ghana with the energy and flavor of the twenty first century. A big star in Ghana, he sings in Frafra, Twi and English, and plays the kologo, a two string guitar with a calabash gourd resonator, rhythmic and melodic at the same time. After touring with ZEA in 2012, Arnold de Boer released ‘Modern Ghanaians’ on his Makkum Recs, followed by 2014′s ‘Wicked Leaders’ and ’1000 Can Die’, with guest features by Lee “Scratch” Perry, afrobeat legend Orlando Julius and more. Tonight he plays acoustic with pure manpower on our terrace, De Ruimte Buiten!
Group initiated by guitarists Andy Moor (The Ex) and Jasper Stadhouders (Cactus Truck / Spinifex etc.) playing interpretations of Angolan popular guitar music from the 60s and 70s.
Andy Moor – guitar | Jasper Stadhouders – guitar | Marta Warelis – percussion | Miguel Petruccelli – bass | Onno Govaert – drums
Before and after the concerts, we’re expecting DJ-sets by Andy Moor, Jasper Stadhouders and DJ Getal en Ruimte (ZEA).
BTW, since you can never know with Dutch summers: in case of bad weather, we move the concert to our café on the second floor!
