  • Cocobolo

    Mix of old school funk and psych rock
    Kaleidoscope
    Fri 27 Sep ’24

    The recipe for a delightful retro sound? A dash of old school funk, a splash of psychedelic rock mixed with surf-like guitars: that's Cocobolo! Music that is not only wonderful to listen to but also a joy to watch. Cocobolo writes all their music with a visual concept as the starting point. This way, it all comes together as one story, much like a film. Imagine: a chase, an evening walk in the woods, or a rain dance. With these kinds of visual backdrops, all of Cocobolo's songs achieve the same thing: they stimulate your imagination. Experience the adventure with Cocobolo during this edition of Kaleidoscope!

    Kaleidoscope
    Fri 25 Oct ’24

    We know him from Nobody Beats the Drum, SKIP&DIE, and C-mon & Kypski: keyboardist and producer Jori Collignon. COLLIGNON is his new solo project, which quickly evolved into a full-fledged band with Gino Bombrini (known from Komodo) on drums and percussion and Yves Lennertz (known from YĪN YĪN) on guitar. The result? Energetic, uptempo music. A perfect blend of Yves’ wild, exotic melodies and Jori's signature soundscapes. COLLIGNON has already released several singles and will release "Bicicelta" in October. This is their first studio album and it takes you on a musical road trip. And they will be making a stop at Kaleidoscope!

    Kaleidoscope

    The love for funk, disco, and afrobeat brought the men of Cavolo Nero together. The psychedelic groove band is known for their energetic music and equally energetic performances. In 2022, they released their debut EP and toured the Netherlands with Popronde – a great kickstart for national recognition. Their resounding performance at Eurosonic truly tipped the scales, after which their schedule quickly filled up with festival shows. Tonight, they are swapping large festivals for the intimate club setting of M. You're guaranteed a danceable evening with this six-piece band! And we should know: Cavolo Nero played earlier this year during the festive opening of M.
