Mark My Wor(l)ds
Concert series @ Molen de Ster (Utrecht)
In Mark My Wor(l)ds I invite artists from different traditions of the world to perform music in a gorgeous location in Utrecht: a windmill with a wood workshop in full swing.
We present artists with an activistic background and a lot of music. Nimisha Shankar from Mumbai is ‘Recollecting Roots’ in rural areas in India, Daniel Okiror gives street children in Uganda a home and with Fernando Lameirinhas I talk about his book on his and his fathers life under the Salazar regime of Portugal.
Expect an interactive performance, talks and music in a unique setting.

Our CD release ‘Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out‘ got incredible response.
This resulted in reviews and specials in radio shows all over the globe. We are very happy.
Check out what a flute fronted Jazz trio with bass and drums, influenced by a hedonistic philosophic thesis of the psychedelic sixties can do.
Culture Jazz (France) says:
“This is a musician who makes no compromises.”
Jazz Portugal (Portugal)
“A vibrant, energetic record that sets alarm bells ringing.”
“This is not just a tightly playing trio, but a true symbiosis. Superb.”

I make part of a theaterplay ENGINE OFF by Quintijn Terlouw. Performances this weekend in Zwolle at the Ijssel Biënnale. This is a good one with four actors with lots of solo flute performances and duets with pianist Koenraad Spijker at a great location.
Check my work in the 2023 releases by
