The impro Train and other Doek initiatives - June 2021

Live concerts are again possible in the Netherlands – hooray - which means that together with the Bimhuis we will be presenting two editions of The impro Train: 11 june Hupata! and Wilbert de Joode solo and 22 july Mother Tongue with solos by john Dikeman and Ab Baars.  3 sets per evening, 3 chances to hear musicians working at the top of their game.

Exchange Muzzix/Doek
At the end of June three Doek musicians – Oscar Jan Hoogland, Ada Rave and John Dikeman will travel to Lille to play and present concerts at La Malterie with three musicians from the Muzzix collective  - Sakina Abdou, David Bausseron and Peter Orins. Then all six will travel to Amsterdam for open rehearsals and concerts.

Doek Composes
We’ve just released the eighth in the Doek Composes series on our RAW label, this time featuring interpretations by Doek musicians of Ada Rave’s composition Timbral Reflections. Number seven was Jasper Stadhouders’ A Bunch of Little Gestures.
