Great reviews ‘Kind of NO blues’

August 29th, 2013



Today we received a couple of great reviews of our new double album ‘Kind of NO blues’. Makes us very proud! [For english translation click here]

Moors Magazine: “Een magnifiek dubbelalbum van de opmerkelijkste wereldfusieband die Nederland, en misschien wel Europa, rijk is.” “Ze noemen hun muziek Arabicana, en dat is misschien wel de treffendste omschrijving van de volstrekt unieke, maar absoluut vanzelfsprekend klinkende mix van Arabische muziek, Americana, blues, folk en country die deze geweldige band weet te creëren. Kind of NO blues is een magnifiek meesterwerkje!”

Blues Magazine: “Als je de eerste tonen hoort van het unieke dubbelalbum Kind of NO blues van NO blues dan besef je meteen dat dit een zeer bijzonder album is.” “Een wereldalbum! Deze muziek die ik omschrijf als ‘fusion roots’ verdient de onverholen aandacht van elke muziekliefhebber.”

MusicFrom: “NO blues was al geen eendagsvlieg, maar met deze nieuw ingeslagen weg kunnen we in de toekomst nog veel méér moois verwachten.”

Festivalinfo: “Met Kind of NO blues bewijst het muziekgezelschap waarom het zich tot de top van de Nederlandse wereldmuziek mag rekenen.”

Today part 4: ‘Jij Mooi, For Evelien’

Haytham wrote this song for Evelien, the girl he fell in love with at a NO blues gig and married in the summer 2011. At ‘Het Tuinfeest’, a poetry festival in Deventer, NO blues performed this song in 2012 with two poems by the Dutch novelist and poet Vrouwkje Tuinman. The lyrics speak of a woman who is complemented on her good looks in the early morning at her local bakery, and things that might follow. More about Vrouwkje Tuinman on her website. More info on the 2013 edition of the poetry festival ‘Het Tuinfeest’

NO blues collectibles part 1: ‘The Waterpipe feat. Andre Williams’

June 6th, 2013



Edit 20 june 2013: [player is removed and replaced] The upcoming two weeks you can download en enjoy ‘Balancing Cobra feat. Rodaan Al Galidi’

The release of the new double album ‘Kind of NO blues’ is scheduled for September 15th 2013. But we don’t want to keep you waiting for so long, so you can download one of the twelve new studio recordings from our website every two weeks for free.

About the track
The first tune the ‘Waterpipe feat. Andre Williams’ started as an instrumental track that needed some vocals. Something with a low, calming voice. We thought of Andre Williams. He is the godfather of ‘garage rhythm ‘n blues’. And his lyrics ‘Some folks’ are performed by the man himself. In an almost unusual orderly fashion.
Check the website every two weeks for a new free download.
