Oh Yeah Habibi overview & new tour dates

December 21st, 2015

Recently we had our last show of 2015 in Paradiso, Amsterdam. What a night! And a good moment to look back at the great response we got on our new album Oh Yeah Habibi so far.

A lot of kind words on the album from the audience and different media. A selection:

“Oh Yeah Habibi  is more than a party: the message of NO Blues couldn’t have come at a better time” – MixedWorldMusic

“Oh Yeah Habibi is the best album until now“ – Festivalinfo

“An exciting musical encounter based on mutual respect and the overpowering love for music“ – Mania

“NO blues emerges at Oh Yeah Habibi as a band of bridge builders between cultures“- Folkforum

“Oh Yeah Habibi is an exceptional example of a full-grown cross-over album“ – Here Comes The Flood

“World class record!” – Lust for Live

Onder de Stuwwal: ‘het kleine intieme wereldmuziekfestival’

September 20th, 2011

In het dorp Beek-Ubbergen, onder de rook van Nijmegen, werd in 2006 en 2009 het kleine wereld-muziek festival ‘Onder de Stuwwal‘ georganiseerd door Fundación Interchange. Dit jaar volgt de derde editie van dit intieme festival.

Het festival begint om 14.30 en vindt plaats in het Kulturhus in Beek-Ubbergen op twee podia en in een tent.

Colombiaanse cumbia, Cubaanse son, Chileense latin-fusion, Sefardische muziek en flamenco uit Spanje, West-Afrikaanse grooves, Nederlands-Palestijnse arabicana, zigeunerjazz en nog veel meer. Deze derde editie van Onder de Stuwwal belooft weer een swingend en spannend festijn te worden.

NO blues a year from now

During a visit to Music Meeting festival I bumped into the man who is in charge of the programming Wim Westerveld and we had an interesting talk about an option for NO blues with some special guests for next year. We are looking forward to that!
