Pimp my Drum!

15 Jul 2018

We love banging Big Drums...for us, this Davul or Tapan, a copy of the medieval Balkan Hamina War Drum, is the most epic drum we have. It did need to be pimped a bit more for our upcoming (epic) OMNIA show at Festival Medieval so...there you go!
Have you got a Big Drum? Show us!

Staying Cool :-)

14 Jul 2018

The Dutch weather's HOT and Dry... so Finally we have bought our OWN forest swimmingpool at home!
We had it designed, planned, built and installed today :-)

Well...

(what I actually mean is We took it out of the cardboard box , I put it on the ground and inflated it with a handpump today)
But it's a big fecking tub of water that keeps our butts cool... so it works!

Best €25,- we spent all year!

Greenz and coolness!

This is the main reason why we're at an African Festival... to finally see and hear one of our favourite musicians:
The Gambian Kora player and singer Sona Jobarteh !

She's fecking awesome!
And her band is magical!
Real live music for real people :-)
Greenz and golden strings...

Fixing an ancient artifact!

5 Jul 2018

This drumrack was made by Steve Sic in 1998 and used in all the OMNIA shows until 2007...(everybody took turns playing it, very therapeutic!)
He is now modifying it so we can use it for some Big Drums that will be part of our superfreaky special show with the OMNIA collective on Festival Mediaval in September this year.
So, who out there is building or fixing stuff outside? Houses, fences, rocking horses, thunderboxes, debris shelters...?? Show us!

Lots of summer greenthings with a big BOOM

(O.K. Full moon was yesterday, but, as you will notice from this month's RT, we all had a little vacation time, so cut us some slack this once! ;-) )

Have a nice read, we also love the reactions we get from you guys (through mail and on here) so let us know what YOU thought of this Holiday Special!

Inked Friends!

26 Jun 2018

After racing the Black Beauty Beast up through Bulgaria, Serbia, Hrvatska, Slovenia, Austria and graduly up into ever increasing road rage and chaos through Bavaria we have now reached the peacefull house of our old friends Markus and Verena in Germany
Gerümpelstube Wachenheim
I'm sitting in their backyard listening to the gorgeous singing of the blackbirds while sipping an icecold cider :-)
Good times!
Now to top it off I'm gonna join Jenny in the first hot bath we've had in yonks...

I'm happy :-)

What about YOU?
