Kairos. A meditation on contemporary music. Today Kairos starts with Sophie Hunger again, who performed in Tivoli-Vredenburg in Utrecht on 6 December 2015. A very intimate ‘Schwizerdütsch’ song of which she says: "I have written this for a friendly singer, an old man." Further a song by Canadian Jesse Mac Cormack, who was the supporting act of Sophie Hunger. Also a couple of pieces of the new album ‘Uut de Bron’ by Broeder (Tonnie) Dieleman. Not only the known atmospheric descriptions and the rough edges of everyday and religious living of then and there, but also in between lines the very personal search for meaning in life and spirituality here and now. And musically Tonnie effortlessly connects the world of the troubadour and that of a sound artist. You will also hear some pieces of the beautiful album ‘Chanson Exotique’ by Larissa Groeneveld and Gwyneth Wentink. And ‘Timeless Prayer’ by Anders Holte. And a short poem by Marion Snoek. 00:10 Sophie Hunger. D’Red. Sophie Hunger & band. Album: 1983. Two Gentlemen Records, twogtl 009-J 03:11 Hidayat Inayat Khan. Chanson Exotique, lento.
