50 shades of drought...

22 Jul 2018

We're sitting in the bone dry dusty grass ... Holland is drying out, the fields are yellow and barren, the trees in the forest are turning brown, There is dust everywhere in our forest and the food and water for the already struggling wildlife is getting sparse...

It hasn't rained in quite a while in lush green "water land" Holland (?)
The temperature is "costa del heatwave" and the sky is blue ... every day!
It looks like the spirits of Nature are telling us that change is happening,
Here and now.
Interesting... hmmm?

Happy Birthday Spike!

Looking for a Home...

18 Jul 2018

We're driving around looking for land to buy so that we can finally start building a home for OMNIA...

Where do YOU think we should settle?

(And do you happen to know a plot of land of 50.000 square meters or more in a forest/nature area for sale?)

Greenz and searching...

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!

Big Boomy Things!

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!

Real live music for real people :-)

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
Xx Jenny
