Meindert Talma | De ballade van Jannes van der Wal
Cult singer sings about cult draughts champion
Groningen cult hero Meindert Talma is no stranger to Noorderzon. Every year since 2004 he has put on a new show at our festival. After sharing his experiences with international icons with us last year, this time round he will be returning with a ballad about local hero Jannes van der Wal, a legendary Groningen inhabitant and world champion draughts player. In a 22-minute-long epic ballad, Meindert Talma covers many intriguing aspects of his remarkable life. Combined with a video clip of the same length, the result is a documentary in song which you can experience live during his performance.
