The French Legend, DUB INC. gave us all this warm feeling. Even though we had no sunshine, we got a true "sunshine reggae" feeling from the stage.
It was a rich mixture of sounds - we got electro dub and modern hip hop; while the dancehall pieces were just what Woodstock tribe loves.
Especially impressive was the relaxed stage dialogue between Aurelien „Komlan” Zohou and Hakim „Bouchkour” Meridji. They couldn't be more different yet they couldn't be more in tune. Their exchange was filled with true creative flow and wonderful to behold.
But at the end of the day, it wasn't the words but the music that got the crowd dancing. And how they were dancing! Just flowing between the songs to the pulsating guitars and drums of this musical perfection.
One more thing that impressed us was how well musicians of DUB INC. interacted with Woodstock crowd; you could see they were happy to be here and the crowd was so happy to have them! They were only too eager to "jumped, jump" and "tigri, tigri, bom, bom".
The huge crowd was peaceful and safe and no railings were needed to keep them in check - they are Woodstock people after all! They take care of each other and are here for love, friendship and music! Thank you for giving us all three DUB INC.!
At the encore, big EU flag was spread out in the crowd showing that Woodstock is open and looking outward as well as respecting the EU principles of peace, friendship and tolerance.
DUB INC.'s message was one of diversity. With different styles, different languages and a different pace. But there was one constant - the atmosphere of love, inclusions and togetherness.
Thank you so much for that Woodstock!
Our first CD releases saw the light of day 20 years ago, in 1996. It was the time when audio cassettes were still in vogue. Who even remembers how to play them today?
Another week, another listing in the Golden Spinning Top competition. It is a contest where you, the audience, can decide who gave the best performance at Woodstock Festival Poland 2016 and award them with your vote of confidence.
I grew up on music films. First, there was a black & white film about the Beatles, which has shaped my imagination and musical and visual sensitivity. Music films have inspired my work and influenced the way I see the world.
