 After four successful albums and nearly a decade on the road  NO blues explores new pathways with the latest album  ‘Kind of NO blues’. What started out as a soundtrack for a documentary by former politician Paul Rosenmöller about the Arab Spring, has become a double album. Full of unique live recordings and new songs featuring great  musicians and poets from all over the world. Even an old Sequential Circuits Pro One synthesizer came back to life and joins the music.
The brass section and strings by Quartet Quinetique and Palestinian Morad Khoury add new flavor to the Arabicana of NO blues.  A new and colourful sound with even a feature by the famous American blues legend Andre Williams.

Come visit us at Sunday September 29 when we will be presenting the double album at the Burgerweeshuis in Deventer, the Netherlands. Especially for this matinee concert poets and guest musicians like Vrouwkje Tuinman, Bill Barrett and Quartet Quinetique  will join us.
