Kraakpand with Oko Yono et al.
This edition: Oko Yono / Damast / Spill Gold / Bombathazz
Exploring the world’s immensely diverse music collection, where could you possibly start? Well, Kraakpand has pushed the shuffle-button for you. During this intimate evenings, four bands take turns playing their songs. The host will be your guide.
Jane Birkin, Françoise Hardy and Brigitte Bardot all have something in common. Serge Gainsbourg. But they also made songs of their own. Sans lui.
Oko Yono adds their own flavor to the repertoire of these ladies.
In this duo a very unique approach is brought to a wide repertoire of folk, Arabic, Balkan, Turkish and own compositions.
Arabic and Western European tradition are melded, with a lot of space for improvisation. Damast transcends borders with respect for tradition, and especially with a great love for music.
Spill Gold is a psychedelic three-piece that unwinds vivid, spiralling stories with their eerie yet persistent songs, bringing listeners into a trance-like state.
With snake-charming synths, dreamy yet urgent vocals, swerving guitar lines, and heavy, earthquaking drums, they move you to dance and float away at the same time.
A cocktail of hip hop, soul, funk, elektronica and jazz.
