New Interview

I was recently interviewed by Petra Hiemsta of Haagse Hoogvliegers as part of a series of 12 interviewing contemporary leaders about how they listen (lovingly) and embody loveful leadership in their daily practice. It aims to bundle the results of it in a book that will be published in late 2017/ early 2018! Read the article (in Dutch) here: “Vrede en verlichting brengen via muziek”

Review on Mehmet Polat Trio: Ask your heart

Great review from USA, for our newest album ‘Mehmet Polat Trio – Ask your heart’ in World Music Central, by Dorothy Johnson-Laird: “There is equilibrium among the players, a sense of give-and-take as they improvise, as if each has come to share a delicious communal plate of food.” World Music Central, USA

New article on Singing Circle workshop

Journalist Nieske van der Voort visited our Singing Circle recently and wrote a very nice article about it in a local newspaper (Leuk! 070) of Den Haag. “I close my eyes and mix my own voice with the other circlemates and the kora. It sounds in me, the sounds sound mystical. We sing around the tones of the ancient harp. I feel a woman of old times far far ahead of the Internet, the industrialization and the introduction of the monetary system. A primitive stem deep in the jungle, in close contact with the earth and close to the stars. Very ancient.” Check it out here (in Dutch)!
