We just came home from Rotterdam where we had our World Premiere at the Operadagen festival.
It has been a huge success. Not only three sold out performances, but also requests from all over the world. Mexico, Turkey, Scotland, California, Dominican Republic, Lebanon and much more. 
We are right now a huge hit on the internet, currently around 15 millions of views on videos about us. Media from all over the world is asking for interviews or have mentioned us, BBC radio, India today, South Africa radio, Huffington Post etc etc

So it is quite surreal to experience this explosion. 

It has been a very intense period in Rotterdam with hard work, but a fantastic team that has put all their passion and devotion in to it. Quite rare to experience!

Finally good strings!

After trying perhaps 20 different kind of strings for the Rotacorda, we finally found a perfect set. The winner is a set for western guitar called Elixir Nanoweb phosphor bronze anti-rust (of course). They have an equal sound through the instrument which is a great advantage. For now we only tried it in a big tub, so we are looking forward to try it in Nannas tank with the horn on, which only will make it sound better

Visit to Rotterdam

Just visited Rotterdam to see the venue for our performances during Operadagen, end of May.  It's an old warehouse which will be transferred to a venue with 200 seats. Next door is a very big temporary art exhibition. Very exiting! 
Looking forward to the shows May 27-29. We will be rehearsing at the venue for 10 days to make the final light design and prepare.

New rehearsals

We're having 6 weeks working full time towards a preview in November. Never practiced so much music (instead of working on all that technical issues that had to be solved). Great fun, hard work and an incredible crew!
