BLENDS POP MUSIC WITH BRAZILIAN-AFRICAN VIBES


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

MARK HAANSTRA & OENE VAN GEEL
SHAPES OF TIME


Mark Haanstra and Oene van Geel share a musical history of more than twenty years. A viola/bass guitar duo is perhaps a rare, but in this case obvious combination. Traversing eclectic music genres- jazz to classical, Indian to pop music- has led them to a original idiom. Equipped with only viola and a bass guitar, they have achieved an equally suprising contrast, with what is essentially the smallest band possible!
Their critically acclaimed CD Shapes of Time features special collaborations with visual artist Udo Prinsen and guitarist Raphael Vanoli.
LIVE 2021:
*October 15, De Spot, Middelburg (small line up)
*October 21, Philharmonie, Haarlem
* Canceled
