Music: Boi Akih & Bart Fermie
Seasoned Winternighters know the group Boi Akih. On their most recent CD, Yalelol, the group forms a duet. The dark, charming voice of Monica Akihary and the subtle and intriguing music of composer and guitarist Niels Brouwer make for a fascinating, original sound with jazz and Indonesian, Indian, European, West African and Arab influences. In Indonesia the duo recently played for a hysterical crowd of 10,000. At Winternachten they're assisted by Bart Fermie on percussion.
