A Funky Hip Hop Party
Roots Reggae, Rock Steady, Dub & Steppers
Maybe one of the most all round artist of the jungle. Collaborations with bands as Knarsetand & NNENN, co productions with the producer of Thomas Azier, but now his solo show as a producer. Step into the magical world of deep basses, breathing synths and a twitch of the dalfsen soberness. A local with worldwide intentions!
Reflecting the time we live in, FRÉ brings nature’s songs. Perfect for a festival like The Living VIllage, because this band is all about the love and appreciation for planet earth and everyone who lives on it! This basic thought, combined with the musical background of the artists results in a broad spectrum of sounds and grooves rooted in jazz flavour.
Blending an intense mix of neo-soul, rock, hip-hop and reggae with many elements of pop music that speaks to the younger generation. Choosing to use their technical skills for everything from poetic song texts, improvisations, open ended soundscapes and heavy deep-pocketed grooves, Heavy Faces is a band that has something for everyone with an open mind and an open heart.
Half a century of musical experience joins heads and their melting pot contains a fresh blend of the finest herbs like Klezmer, Ska, Reggae and Polka. With their live performance they bring that to boil. Then add a large amount of soul for extra flavour to get a taste of this unique flavored dance vibe! Papaformigas are here to turn up the jungle of Monkeytown!
An exciting world blend, influenced by ska and reggae, will turn any party into a dancing crowd!
The Magic Mumble Jumble
Every monkey is searching for freedom. Exactly this feeling, being free in the moment, is what brought this band together. Don’t run away from the full spectrum of emotions! This is what we are, this is where our home is. Come join the jungle with a John Lennon-esque vibe and all the world will turn green!
