40 years Paperclip Agency is quite an accomplishment. For the past 26 years I’m part of it, grateful and proud for all the artists that I work(ed) with.
Two weeks ago I had my first show again in the Netherlands since the lockdown in March 2020. What an experience, marvelous, magic! I visited the concert of I Muvrini in Tilburg. Last weekend they played in Heerlen. The audience was really thrilled! Next week I have Huun Huur Tu playing in the Netherlands, see below.
While many people left the music business during lockdown, I got even more convinced that this is what I want to do. I want to work with artists that have something to say, artists that are special, that are not middle-of-the-road. For those artists I want to make it possible to play concerts, in the Netherlands and all over Europe.
I Muvrini and Huun Huur Tu are that kind of artists, for sure. Same for all the other artists on my roster, like Eljuri (see below), Ifriqiyya Electrique, Sass Jordan, Crash Test Dummies, Taimane. I’m longing for the great concert season that is coming now!
The November 2021 tour of Europe for 24-7 SPYZ has been moved to October 2022. See further down below for the new period.
Latin guitar player Eljuri is celebrating October as Hispanic Heritage Month in the USA. She is one of more than 60 million US-based Americans who trace their roots to Spain, Mexico, Central America, South America and the Spanish-speaking nations of the Caribbean. Their stories strengthen and enrich the fabric of the USA.
Her songs resonate with the vibrant family history passed to her from Spain, Lebanon and Ecuador, fusing musical genres that mirror the experiences of her life. She is currently writing them into her fifth solo studio album due to be released in 2022. “Eso es mi latinidad!”
She is available for summer festivals and for club show in fall 2022.
Huun Huur Tu
Tuvan throatsingers Huun Huur Tu are visting the Netherlands again next week, starting next Sunday with a live show at the TV program ‘Podium Witteman‘, just before their concert at Bimhuis in Amsterdam. The concert is supported by a 30-minute film about Tuva: “Terra Incognita Tuva“. The film tells us more about the habits of the nomads in that region, and shows the astonishing nature.
Now the world is gradually opening again for traveling, concerts and festivals, Paperclip Agency has some amazing artists available for festivals. In this link you find a selection of our artists, maybe some of them will find their way to your festival!
