Balkan Psychedelic * Ethno Rock * Cretan Folk * Blues * Rock’n’Roll
A special mash-up of Jamboree favourites Gipsydelica and Balothizer, the Roots Ethno Rock Collective roll through Balkan Psychedelic and Ethno Rock with Cretan flavours.
Rik van den Bosch draws from original folk and blues sounds from way back, ’60s rock’n’roll grooves and modern rock rhythms – with a bit of gypsy and Spanish influence thrown in for good measure.
He’s one-man-band, armed with a variety of tools to create a full and interesting sound, from his slide and harmonica to his incredible vocal range. He is a storyteller, both in and between the songs in his set. At the age of seven he built his own guitar using a tin can, a chunk of wood and a nylon string. He shies away from textbook techniques, settling outside the margins of academic art.
Rik continues to push the boundaries of musical orthodoxy, delivering his latest E.P. ‘Love on the rocks’ with four brand new recordings and four brand new video clips alongside.
“Folk, blues, rhythm ‘n’ blues, country and even Mexican influences. It s the logical musical World for the one that cycled three months long from New Orleans to New York with a guitar on his back, to play on the streets along the way” – Ruud Heijer, Popmagazine Heaven
