Aafke Romeijn Writes and Sings
Heavy beats, razor-sharp texts and analogue synthesizers: Aafke Romeijn (1986) is the uncrowed queen of Dutch-language electro-pop. Think Spinvis meets Daft Punk meets Peaches and you're starting to get the picture. Maybe you've heard "Alles Went" ("You Can Get Used to Anything"), the hipster song she composed with Sef, or maybe you've caught her on Twitter -- Aafke isn't ever afraid to speak out. She made her debut as a writer in 2018 with Concept M, a highly praised novel about radicalization in the Netherlands.
At the Haagse Hogeschool's Speakers' Corner Aafke Romeijn performed a couple of her songs, read from her novel Concept M and had a conversation with Hassnae Bouazza and the public.
Romeijn also performed for the 2019 Winternachten festival during the festival edition of Words Become Meaning at the Paard van Troje on Thursday, 17 January, and during the main festival evenings, Friday & Saturday Unlimited, on 18 and 19 January at Theater aan het Spui/Filmhuis Den Haag.
