Yiddish revolutionary and resistance songs

Monday 27th November 2017, Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. After the food, Yiddish revolutionary and resistance songs.

Join for an evening of Yiddish revolutionary and resistance songs. Yiddish is the historic language of Central and Eastern European (Ashkenazi) Jews and is a mix between German, Hebrew, Aramaic and Slavic languages. It is barely spoken anymore today, but it used to be the language in which most of vibrant Jewish culture in Europe took place. The songs in this performance are all from the Jewish socialist and anarchist worker’s movement in Europe from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century, as well as from anti-Nazi Partisan resistance. These songs are not only beautiful to sing and to listen to, but they also carry with them a forgotten history of pre-Holocaust as well as pre-Israel socialist Jewish culture. Addressing issues such as police violence, poverty, housing, sweatshops, unions and fascism, these songs continue to be of political relevance today.

Benefit for a cultural project in Peru. Music with Captain Frank & The Cheap Ho’s

Thursday 23rd November 2017, Art for Peace, What’s your Story? Benefit for a cultural project in Peru. Music with Captain Frank & The Cheap Ho’s. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Music between 9 and 10pm.

A benefit to organize a cultural project in the Masin district of Peru to help with the reconciliation and peace-process. In the 1980’s this district suffered under the armed conflict of the guerrillas of the Shining Path and the paramilitary. It is until this day a controversial political subject. Because of this we use the language of theater, storytelling and music to heal the history of violence the villagers have lived in this period. We use art as a tool to empower people.

Why:
’Society has failed when it imprisons those who question it’
Last July hundreds thousands of people took the streets in Hamburg, to speak out against the one-liberal policies of the G20. Right form the start there was a systematic and targeted criminalisation of activists. Escalation from the side of the police, false statements from the state, and framing in the media distracted the public debate from the political message of the activists and aimed to break the movement on the streets.

Benefit for the political prisoners in Turkey. Music with the Resonant Rogues

Monday 21st August 2017, Benefit for the political prisoners in Turkey, from 7pm. Music with the Resonant Rogues from 8:30pm till 10pm.

Our Kurdish friends are back for their monthly benefit for the political prisoners in Turkey. After the food, on the stage, music with the Resonant Rogues from Asheville, North Carolina, duo accordion, banjo, guitar, vocals, suitcase, percussion. Two years ago, the Resonants Rogues played all the squats in Amsterdam. Their tour blog is all about what they experienced in Amsterdam and further.

“American folk music has always had a populist perspective, a vision of music made by the people, for the people. Asheville, North Carolina roots band The Resonant Rogues know this well, for they’ve traveled the byways and highways of America, even crossed the water to Europe and the Mediterranean with instruments and songs in tow. Anchored by the songwriting duo Sparrow and Keith Smith, the Rogues have shared songs with train-hoppers in New Orleans, busked on the streets of Budapest, learned Turkish Romani dance in Istanbul, and marched in protest in the hills of Appalachia. Throughout, the stories they’ve heard and the people they’ve met have fueled their music, which abounds with influences like Eastern European Romani brass bands, New Orleans street jazz, old-time stringbands, Woody Guthrie anti-fascist folk, French jazz manouche, and Middle Eastern rhythms. It’s not easy to pull off such a bold combination of genres, but The Resonant Rogues learned this music in person from the people who created it, so they have a tie to each tradition and a working knowledge of what this music means to the ordinary people that make this music every day. It’s a tintype view on the modern world,a cracked image that reflects the past through a prism of the future.”

Benefit for the political prisoners in Turkey, music with Bordelestino (Chile)

Monday 10th July 2017, Benefit for the political prisoners in Turkey, music with Bordelestino. Volkseten Vegazulu at 7pm. Music from 9 till 10pm.

Bordelestino was formed in Santiago of Chili in 2011, by members Lolita Ponce, violin and vocals, Javier Valdebenito, double bass, and David Santis, accordion and vocals. Their repertoire ranges from tango, to French chanson; from Italian canzonetta and tarantella, to Chilean waltz and tonada; from Balkan music, to jazz, and to their own songs which melt those music genres with stories and poems. The use of acoustic instruments has made us a constant presence on the streets, in Chile, Brasil, France and Italy. During their 2015 European tour, Bordelestino made quite an impression in Finland. They are again on their way to Tampere. Lucky us, they are back for one night at Joe’s Garage. http://bordelestino.cl/ https://soundcloud.com/bordelestino/ […Lees verder]

Music with Jake Bellissimo & Maud Scheltinga

Thursday 22nd June 2017, Music with Jake Bellissimo, Maud Scheltinga & more to be announced. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Music from 8:30pm.

Jake Bellissimo: “I’m a queer songwriter from Rochester, NY (USA) and I co-run the record label Drunk With Love Records with Jack Barham, where I put out the music of myself and my friends.”

Maud Scheltinga: Over the past couple of years, Maud has interpreted and re-interpreted the world around her by means of songs like short stories. Listening to her music feels like listening to a bookshop owner taking different (but equally beloved) books off the shelf and dazzling you with short and direct anecdotes that offer a peek inside.

Drunk With Love Records was founded in 2014 as a response to the missing link between professionalism and intimacy. Based somewhere in between upstate New York and Berlin (and named after the Bruz Fletcher song “Drunk With Love”), it currently represents a family of songwriters, composers, and artists. Separating the art from the artist is not what we do—by combining music with our lives we can give the audience context on a very personal level. Formats (albums, singles, etc.) are nearly irrelevant, honesty is key. Drunk With Love Records documents art in its immediate form, as a reflection of the immediacy in our lives.

The latest solo release from Jake Bellissimo without the gay angel monicker plays with making the intimate spacious and vice versa. This time without a large ensemble behind him, the music shifts between full band, orchestral arrangements, and acoustic moments. Taking inspiration from traveling and states of flux, Piece of Ivy is a transition point, a diary for the months following an exhale.
