Thanks the collaborative efforts of Le Guess Who? and Music Meeting, noura mint seymali will perform in The Netherlands for the first time this May. Noura Mint Seymali is a nationally beloved star and one of Mauritania’s most adventurous young artists. Her music has been called the modern sound of Mauritania because Seymali effortlessly fuses ancient and modern Moorish music with a variety of pop sounds. This isn't the desert blues as much as it is full-blown desert psychedelia. Ever since the age of 13, when her grandmother taught her to play the ardine - a nine-string harp reserved only for women, Noura has been set to carry on traditions while creating her own unique sound. Seymali’s father, Seymali Ould Mouhamed Val, was the first person to devise a system of notation for Moorish music. He sparked Noura’s interest in fusing different musical styles, by combining their traditional notes with Arab classical music. Want to get to know Noura Mint Seymali’s music better? Check out our complete story on this extraordinary musician at and make sure to experience her live, fueled by the exploratory sound of her husband’s emotive psych guitar lines, during One Night in Pandora, May 23 at TivoliVredenburg.

ARC Record Planet - The Worlds Biggest Record Fairs
Crate Diggers Unite! On April 11 & 12, Record Planet's Mega Record & CD Fair will take over the Jaarbeurs Convention centre in Utrecht again, packed with exhibitions, live performances, book signings and most important: over 500 vinyl and CD dealers from all over the world. The Mega Record & CD Fair takes place at the same time as the International Collectors Fair, together they’ll form a huge cult event taking place in the equivalent space of 10 football pitches. The Mega Record & CD Fair will also host the exhibition ‘Rock Icons from the last century’, curated by the owner of the Bamalama gallery John Brett (UK). This exhibit will show the change from simple and innocent gig announcements of the early sixties to the much more sophisticated & psychedelic artwork later that decade, showcasing rare posters of legendary icons like Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd and the Beach Boys among many others.

International Festivals 2015 – Music – Travel – The Skinny
UK’s The Skinny are also looking forward to Le Guess Who? 2015 already: “Utrecht’s redoubtable Le Guess Who? takes place in November, so official line-up details may yet be some way off. Still, this year organisers are also handling a one-day event entitled One Night in Pandora, starring Pallbearer and garage rock titans Thee Oh Sees, so that should give you some idea of where their hearts lie.” We sure hope so!
