Music and Wim

Music is all about communication.
The music that I play is meant as a vehicle towards communication. It is about telling stories during a concert. Listen to yours, tell you mine and in this way getting to know each other.

I love singing in Dutch, English, Spanish, German, French and Arabic.
In my sounds you can recognize my inspiration in Cuban and African guitar styles and I adore incorporating in my improvisations musical and mystical influences from the Middle and Far East.

I play the guitar, the diatonic accordeon, rav drum (or hang drum), didgeridoo and many more percussion instruments.

Small-scale and close to you

A small-scale performance. With my guitar on my lap and close to the audience. In your living room, in your garden. 
If you search for background music, I recommend activating your Spotify-account.



What people wrote afterwards

(...) Pure, honest, authentic, full of passion, complete, "healing". (...)
