Desert Blues

04-10-2018 t/m 17-10-2018

At the invitation of The Hunger Project, an international organisation committed to ending world hunger, our musicians travelled to Benin, land of dancers, singers, percussion virtuosos and voodoo music. Performing together with them was a festive, once-in-a-lifetime experience. Like the previous trips (to SurinamCuba and Georgia), the visit to West Africa resulted in a beautiful musical programme. The musician friends we made in Benin will now pay a virtual or real-life visit to the Netherlands to create ‘Desert Blues’ together with the NWE: a fiery spectacle that transcends borders and genres.
