Travelling Man

Some of you guys may recognize: This is the first track on our brand new Sailing Conductors album “AAA”! This is the outcome when creative, talented and passionate musicians make music together. We were so incredibly lucky to work with the amazing NEOJIBA project from Salvador, Bahia in Brazil. And apart from that… Brazil is full of highly talented musos and we would’ve loved to spend more time in this beautiful country to record more great musicians.
We started recording Andrew James in South Africa where he just played some guitar lines he had just come up with. When we arrived in Rio de Janeiro, Vicky Lucato wrote some beautiful lyrics for the song about us! How cool is that! Then Fernando Bastos added his glorious piano and finally we were more than lucky to work with NEOJIBA ( – a Youth Orchestra from Salvador. Thank you so much guys for everything you did for us! But now enough talking. Just close your eyes and enjoy some honest music.

We have won!

We are happy. We are proud. We have won.

We hereby break the news to you that we have won this year’s SAE Alumni Award in the category “Special Jury Award” with our Sailing Conductors project. The jury supposedly decided unanimously and we are extremely happy right now.

After three weeks and many considerations on the boat we decided that our Smutje Hannes is taking his holiday early this year because he still had some residual leave. So he has been back to good old Germany since mid of October and he was in Berlin at the award presentation ceremony on the 18th. This here is the video Hannes showed at the convention and which we quickly snipped together on our last journey.
Unfortunately Captain Ben had to stay “at home” to take care of Marianne and to fix her up for the next year 2013 when it says again: Hoist the sails for America! We’re coming!

This is what happens when the sun burns like fire and your brain is about to melt. After a two-hour recording session with the boys they just couldn’t stop playing music. And MC Ben had to dig up the only song he knows how to rap!
It was a big mission to climb on that hill with all the recording equipment but it was definitely worth it! So Marianne could watch us from down there.
Many thanks to Olgatien for showing us around, introducing us to the other musicians and for playing the guitar.
We are hereby officially off for Mozambique. The motor is running already. See you guys there! Have fun.
