Arnold Veeman will perform at the church in Klein Wetsinge on Easter Monday. After the concert you can enjoy a meal that combines the cuisine of Surinam and Groningen.
In search of his roots
Where are you from, what shaped you? For composer Arnold Veeman the search for his roots was quite a challenge: were they in Surinam or were they in Groningen after all. A journey to distant relatives had a profound emotional impact on him and on his music. In his new theatre show Klaai Veeman goes in search of the music that makes him feel at home – as always with compositions written in the local dialect of Groningen, but now with a generous portion of Surinam influences thrown in: swinging, jazzy, happy and diverse. This afternoon Veeman performs with Remko Wind (piano), Libbe Oosterman (trumpet) and Joost van der Beek (guitar). After the concert a meal combining cuisine from Surinam and Groningen will be served.
Lyrical songs in local dialect
A newspaper review of his latest CD Klaai said: ‘Few musicians in the North of Holland are as versatile as Veeman. He composes contemporary classical music, played in a metal band, writes music for films and musicals, and he writes lyrical songs in the local dialect.'
