De RUIMTE FESTIVAL @ SEXYLAND
Fri 19 August Day 1
Location: Sexyland World, Noordwal 1, Amsterdam
This summer De Ruimte rides the caravan to Sexyland World for a two-day highly flammable pit stop festival. The festival is co-programmed by Space is the Place & Nebular Sessions.
Expect poetry, modern dance, jazz and impro, intimate concerts, spectacular performances, African music, impressive classical, and highly danceable brass & electronic grooves, cumbia and Arabic tunes. Sexyland World vibrates continuously for two days: acoustic concerts outside, amplified music in the main hall inside and on the second floor intimate backstage performances.
KAREL VAN DER EIJK
HARMEN FRAANJE/CLEMENS VAN DER FEEN/FLIN VAN HEMMEN
This groove-based trio is a melting pot of cultures freshly squeezed and bottled into one of the sweetest nectars around. Elements from Southern Africa, the Balkans, Morocco, Afrobeat, Reggae and contemporary music.
James McClure – Trumpet & Percussion | Gediminas Stepanavičius – Sousaphone | Nikos Thessalonikefs – Drums
Ruisburo presents: Strict Nurse
Strict Nurse is the alter ego of Leilani Trowell. Strict Nurse improvises with layered cassette loops, samples, synthesizers and a sweet, sinister voice to cast a spellbinding soundscape.
Karel van der Eijk
Karel van der Eijk is known for his unique installations in which sound and mechanics form the basis. Some of his installations can move at the touch of a button, others are played like a musical instrument.
Melodic pop compositions flowing into danceable West African rhythms, ambient interludes and complex harmonies. Fast De takes you with an overdose of energy on a lively trip that you can’t get out of quickly.
Daniël Eskens bass guitar, synths | Dario Trapani guitar | Jimmi Huenting drums
Harmen Fraanje/Clemens van der Feen/Flin van Hemmen
Lyric, playful music performed by a strong trio, which can only occasionally perform, due to the emigration of Flin van Hemmen to the USA. This is one of the rare occasions!
Harmen Fraanje – piano | Clemens van der Feen – double bass | Flin van Hemmen – drums
