luisterpaal 3voor12

November 15th, 2010



Hela Hela is the first of four albums by NO blues which is actually on the ‘ luisterpaal’  of 3voor12.  It seems like we are finally outgrowing the stigma ‘worldmusic’. We feel very strongly about the fact that we are just playing music of the world and are by doing so, representing the global fusion of people and ideas. Although our music is deeply rooted in music traditions from all over the globe, being caged in to the worldmusic box always has been rather strange to us.

The biggest downside of the world music stigma is also that you will get none or very limited airplay. Which  deprives us from a big potential audience and ultimately will keep world music caged in to it’s own box.  So we are very happy and grateful with the continues high rating for our new album @ the luisterpaal. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and votes for the album. These are the first small steps to set us free!

Our dear friends from Palestine will be joining us for the 4 cd release promo gigs in December, so we hope to meet you there.
