Ronald Snijders and the Nelson & Djosa Sessions


It all started when...

One of our most extensive projects to date is the recently released project "The Nelson&Djosa Sessions", released on V2 Records/Rush Hour. This album is a collection of songs by Ronald Snijders, a legendary Surinam flute player we met 15 years ago. This unique character already featured on our previous productions Elle and Satellite Love. We wanted to re-introduce Ronald to a new audience, bringing some of his amazing originals from the 70s and 80s back to life, together with Ronald on flute and guest appearances by Azymuth, Bassekou Kouyate, Ed Motta, Orlando Julius, Dwight Trible and Jamire Williams a.o.. The album got raving reviews from all national newspapers and has recently been picked up by Gilles Peterson and Anthony Valadez, receiving airplay on BBC and KCRW.
