A very special music recipe
The accordion could be described as the heirloom fruit in the musical basket: not one that comes directly to mind, not always popular, but undoubtedly a key ingredient for an entirely different and exceptional sensation everyone would love to experience more often. Born in Groningen, Remco Sietsema featured in Vluchtgoud at Noorderzon just last year. This year he will be playing in the charming Spiegeltent together with his band, playing his own compositions and a brand-new repertoire. In 2017 his debut album Sultana was released, of course featuring the accordion. Sietsema combines many styles, from funky world music to jazzy reggae and folk, while whatever the weather, he will conjure up the feeling of a sultry summer evening. After tonight rest assured you will always recall the accordion.
"Never before, a cd was released by a Dutch diatonic accordion player at such a high level of musicality (...). The complex rhythmic finesses, the power of the arrangements, the management of the accordion and the band's compassion [stand] at unprecedented height."
