3voor12: “NO blues’ mix of cultures stays intriguing”

March 2nd, 2016

What a great start for us this year! We kicked off in LUX Nijmegen where we got a really nice live review.

After that we played a sold out show in the ever so nice Amer in Amen to continue our tour in Muziekgebouw Eindhoven, a show that was also totally sold out. What an honor to see the audience enjoy our music so much!

3voor12 Eindhoven visited the concert and wrote an extensive review (Dutch only): NO blues 3voor12

Let’s hope for more good things to come this year.

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.
