Mabassa is the portugese word for twin brother. They represents the musical connection between two musicians from different continents. Breno Viricimo moved from his home country Brazil to continue his musical career and met Nate Dizco. They had more in common than just playing the bass: writing songs and telling stories. The lyrics are in Portuguese and the music makes you wanna dance
As a child, Izaline always would sang in children’s choirs, for instance in ‘Perlitas’ led by the famous Rudy Plaate.
For this project, Izaline chose songs from her youth that every Antillian likes to sing along, from reknown composers as Richard Simon, Padu Lampe from Aruba and above-mentioned Rudy Plaate. She had the songs adapted in the Dutch language, by Koos Meinderts and
together with a.o. Thijs Borsten she recorded the songs; this CD comes with an accompanying picture-book.
As from fall 2022 they will tour with a music theatre show but for now you can enjoy the songs!

Harry Belafonte is known as one of the most successful Jamaican-American singers in history, and was nicknamed the 'King of Calypso' for popularizing the Caribbean musical style around the world in the 1950s.
But next to scoring hits, he also was an early supporter of the Civil Rights Movement in the 50s and 60s and was a close confidant of Martin Luther King Jr. He has also been an advocate for various political and humanitarian causes, such as the Anti-Apartheid Movement. Since 1987, he has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador; He also acts as the American Civil Liberties Union celebrity ambassador for juvenile justice issues.
And now on the age of 94 Harry Belafonte is still alive and kicking. This theatre tour is a musical tribute to his unique life and his commitment to arts and organizing.

Last year this all-star TRIO presented their album Live at the Concertgebouw at LantarenVenster in Rotterdam.
Izaline has been performing with guitarist Ed Verhoeff for more than 10 years. In their search for a third instrument to join them, they met trumpetplayer Angelo Verploegen with his intuitive and warm sound. Expect well-known songs of Izaline but also compositions from Ed and Angelo and jazzstandards which all sounds completely different played by this Trio.
Defiantly original duo Witch 'n' Monk combine Mauricio Velasierra’s radically electrified Latin American flutes with Heidi Heidelberg’s jazz-punk guitar/bass and anarchic soprano vocals. Their music travels seamlessly from structured arrangements to wild improvisations, using a myriad of control pedals and labyrinthine signal paths.
Celebrated in jazz, contemporary classical and DIY music scenes, they have played prestigious venues and festivals such as the Royal Festival Hall, Berlin, London and Umea Jazz Festivals and Paris' La Cigale.
Skanu mezs is a festival for adventurous (innovative, experimental, avant-garde, etc.) music from Riga, Latvia. This year Skanu mezs is celebrating its 20th anniversary with special events, including the showcase at Tallinn Music Week.
