Abel Tasman school

Abel Janszoon Tasman (Dutch: [ˈɑbəl ˈjɑnsoːn ˈtɑsmɑn]; 1603 – 10 October 1659) was a Dutch seafarer, explorer, and merchant, best known for his voyages of 1642 and 1644 in the service of the Dutch East India Company (VOC). He was the first known European explorer to reach the islands of Van Diemen's Land (now Tasmania) and New Zealand, and to sight the Fiji islands. LINK Abel Tasmanschool

Maceo Parker

Special guest Candy Dulfer. Seen @ Theatre Rotterdam

Funk and soul icon Maceo Parker is still smartly dressed and brings his infectious music by wish live. The alto saxophonist played in the past with such luminaries as Prince, James Brown, Bootsy Collins and Ray Charles. On his own performances, he navigates between James Brown's' 60s soul and George Clinton's freaky funk and touches of jazz and hip hop. Maceo Parker (1943) is a living proof that funk keeps people young. He used to be an essential part of the engine that James Brown as swinging did bounce around the stage. The unmistakable sound of Maceo was played on big hits like Papa's got a brand new bag, and I feel good. He helped build the alternative funk empire of George Clinton and Bootsy Collins, and he played with artists such as Ray Charles, Prince and Red Hot Chili Peppers in recent decades.

In recent years is a close-knit community developed around Tegenlicht010, the volunteer team from Rotterdam. Not only on social media, but also thanks to the residents company de Banier (the Banner), home of the organization from the very beginning, Rotterdam people find them more often.
