The Impro Train is back, baby!
Three sets by two ensembles. Go to one, go to them all, either way it’ll be a fabulous evening.
Fabulous!

Saxophone, piano and percussion form the sound of Hupata!, alongside a wonky, wobbly, rickety, going hog wild wagon filled with toys, which transform and take shapes of birds, elephants, camels, taking you for a journey.

Mother Tongue – Molla Sylla voice/mbira/xalam, Oscar jan Hoogland electric clavichord and Frank Rosaly drums – recently recorded a great half hour piece in de Rode Bioscoop as part of the Amarte Concert Series. Enjoy watching the trio at work – we also recommend hooking up to some good speakers for real closed eyes listening pleasure.

Thanks to the Roode Bioscoop, to Isla van Hout for the production, to the camera people and to Marc Schots for  a more that fantasic recording.

Musicians Talk: Full Playlist

Posted on 1 April 2021 in Media, News, Video

The first five episodes of Eric Boeren’s Musicians talk can be seen on the YouTube playlist above.
We hope to find funding to continue this series; in the meantime here’s plenty to stimulate your curiosity.

MUSICIANS TALK On tour, over dinner, in the car, in the train, at airports, during and after rehearsals, musicians don’t tend to talk much about music, but when they do you get to hear ins and outs that somehow never seem to surface in articles.

In several round table discussions, Eric Boeren spoke with musicians he has played with over the years.

Musicians Talk: Drums

DRUMS

Han Bennink, John Engels, Michael Vatcher and Frank Rosaly talk about playing along with records on newspapers and kitchen chairs, about lefthanded set ups and about tuning a snare drum. “Jo Jones always played with the snares off!”
