WOW. Poland and Holland jointly own America !!!

 

 I have a thing about extremely skilled drummers and cute boys (in my terms) and ONNO GOVAERT more than makes the cut at both areas. Some english speaking improv/free jazz geek  should interview this dazzling dutch wunderkind (but then, how old is he?). P N-L, eat your heart out (no, just kidding).

 

 

ONNO GOVAERT began his career when he was 11 years old in a punk-band. During high school he was obsessed by jazz music and performed with dutch jazz stars in jazz clubs. After high school Onno moved to Amsterdam where he developed a remarkable way of playing the drums described in reviews as unconventional, devouring, spectacular, threatening, and “as if the devil is chasing him”. He plays in many free jazz / improv related groups with which he has performed in prominent venues and festivals in Holland, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Norway, Iceland, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia and the USA. Musicians he played with include Ab Baars, Wilbert de Joode, Terrie Ex, Andy Moor, Arthur Doyle, Michael Moore, Michael Vatcher, Theo Loevendie, Trevor Dunn, Shazad Ismaily, Benoit Delbecq, Audrey Chen, Joost Buis, Tobias Klein and Lori Freedman.
