There’s a thing about African music that just makes my heart beat a bit faster and happier. Luckily I’m not the only one and so we are getting more and more funky Afrobeat of African bluesy bands playing in Europe. It doesn’t attract the amounts of crowd like the big western rockbands do, but there’s a good bunch of music lovers that will turn up for these concerts! Last Wednesday Guy One from Ghana played at Vera.
A double-concert tonight: After having visited Basia Bulat in the Grand Theatre in Groningen there was time for another great concert, even though it was totally different: Funk and Afrobeat by Vaudou Game and their special guest Roger Damawuzan.
On May 5th we celebrate freedom in the Netherlands, it was the day the Second World War ended for the Netherlands in 1945. There are festivals all over the country with a bunch of mayor bands and a lot of local bands. This year was my first visit to the festival in Groningen.
