Acoustic Moods: Ton Maas welcomes Sanja Javor
Acoustic Moods on Friday 30 November 21.00 CET features Sanja Javor. We recently met up with Sanja in the Duif in Amsterdam where she had organised a concert by the Bosinan singer Amira Medunjanin. She welcomed the public together with her brother and father. The Duif was packed and many people had arrived early and had queued outside for more than an hour to be sure of getting in. The Acoustic Roots team was there to record the concert and to interview Amira for the programme that we will be broadcasting on 21 December. It was immediately clear to us that many of the audience were originally from Bosnia and everyone seemed to know one another. It was impressive to see how many people were in the Duif for Amira Medunjanin. This was enough reason to invite Sanja to join us in Acoustic Moods and to talk with Ton Maas about her passion for music, the artists that inspire her and the concerts that she organises. For more information see the programme guide
Singing sisters (and more melancholy)
On sunday 2nd December, get a wake up call from the singing sisters of the Concertzender. During the last morning broadcast of the Week of Melancholy the past comes to life once again. In the Palace of Melancholy you’ll hear the young Quebe Sisters kicking up a storm with early western swing-repertoire, from the early days of the blues. And another sister: Alberta Hunter, who after working for years as a nurse came back onto the podium in her 80’s and immediately had everyone under her spell. Waking up never felt so good.

The broadcast includes the brand new lp by the experimental music ensemble Maciunas, started by the well-known Eindhoven sound artist Paul Panhuysen. From Thomas Ankersmit you can hear his spectacular ode to music pioneer Dick Raaijmakers, and the recently published music by Tobias Klein and the duo Bart van Dongen/Richard van Kruysdijk. When?

On 27 November: the night of Torch Songs
What could sound more melancholy than unfulfilled longings? The English has the phrase: To carry a torch for someone, which means something like being in love with someone who is out of reach. During the evening of 27/28th November the Concertzender will be holding a special Jazznight, devoted to so-called ‘Torch Songs’.There have been hundres of songs about this theme. During this evening you’ll hear a number of these Torch Songs performed by various female vocalists.
