2009 I participated the first time at a version of Daniel Preissler. Even tough I have seen village music before, this was the time I definitely fell in love with it.
In several workshops I learned a lot from Daniel and my appetite for a village music became increasingly bigger.
In 2011 I spend six weeks in Hamana to experience the music and the culture up close and in person. At that time I absolutely fell in love with this old fashion village music and I made it to the main focus of my teaching.
The last three trips to Hamana I was accompanied by my wife Miriam who had already spent some time there before. Together we learned a lot about the connection between dance and music and experienced a lot of really cool village festivals.
