Abdul Azzizz – one of the finest – if not the finest – Reggae bass player around today on the European mainland, has decided to repatriate to the motherland.
September 15th, Azzizz will play one more time together with Fourth Angel & Strawl at ‘De Bakkerij‘ in Eindhoven. The place where it all started 10+ years ago. It was no more than appropriate to throw a ‘repatriation party’ for Azzizz at this club. To say farewell, to complete the full circle…….. and start a new one.
From East to West, Alpha & Omega, we wish him and his family God’s speed, blessings and prosperity.
Reggae vibes are universal… Not long after his arrival from the Caribbean, Azzizz picked up the bass guitar for the first time as co-founder of the brand new Reggae collective ‘New Born Creation’. Together they travelled on a magnificent journey to experience music, spirituality and life. NBC’s track record of national and international performances to date is still outstanding, surpassed by few in the neighbourhood, and an inspiration to many who came after them.
True & through experience….
makes that people come together and stay together,
knowing full well that what was yesteryear will come tomorrow,
again and again….
Then stepped into the floodlights… the ‘Fourth Angel’. The drum, rhythm, vocal and bass core linked up with ‘Strawl‘, a dedicated vocalist and performer, whom Azzizz knew from way back…. back home. For those who know him personally Azzizz since long expressed the wish to go home. Home to his roots, home to his parents, together with his newly founded family. That decision day had to come, that day has come.
So we say goodbye to Azzizz on Friday September 15 at ‘de Bakkerij’ in Eindhoven. Until we meet again….
