The other day there was a knock on the door which turned out to be hiphop and rap artist Ewane. He also played the Barnstedt musikmeile, heard about what I do and made the effort to come by. We exchanged ideas, listened to what each other does and the upshot is that we're gonna try and do some music together. Wait and see!
So, we played twice at the Barnstedt Musikmeile benefit thing last Sunday. I think we did ok; the first set was probably better than the second one, but, all in all, fine. It was announced that the fundraising aspect was successful, and that most certainly is the main thing. The gig was to raise funds to help asylum seekers currently housed in the village, to cover things like translators and legal costs. I imagine a lot of places are in the same boat these days, with asylum seekers from Sudan and Somalia being spread out through Germany. As far as I can tell, the official funding isn't what it could be, so, whatever we can do to help is good.
It's great to see people willingly helping people despite language and cultural differences. We need to grow towards seeing ourselves as one race and not concentrating on petty regional differences as somehow often seems to be the case.
Here's a link to the website of the Barnstedt Musikmeile where I'll be performing 2 live sets on 7th Sept.
I'll be on stage performing some music at the benefit gig for asylum seekers in Barnstedt on 7th September. According to current planning, I'll be on twice; once in the morning and once in the afternoon. Hazel Pearl will be singing a couple of our songs and I think I'll be joined on stage by EB and KerryB. Looking forward to it :-)
After much umming and aahhing, I've decided not to play the Facebook game anymore. I've deleted that page. Bored with it :-O
So please don't "like" me with the blue "F" button.
I've put a couple of new tracks on the Sound and Vision page - Check them out!!
I don't usually do this kind of thing. But the eloquence of Mr Brand here impresses me.
Check out YnotB radio on Jango. It'll play cool, mellow, downtempo and trip hop vibes for a relaxing listening experience. You'll find it here
