Video: Your new T-shirts arrived! – Rapalje Show 82

No Rapalje Show on YouTube because I was very busy building, refurbishing, my loudspeaker systems

But now we got new T-shirts!

We could not decide which colour we would use, because we wanted a T-shirt in brown like this one. But many of you wanted a dark green. So we got both!
The design is from our older logo from the first CD we ever made. With the new logo on the back

Video: Subtitles in your language – Rapalje Show 80

I need to practice some more to write on this blackboard

I made some videos and some outdoor recordings from this nice building Zollhaus in Leer and how we are performing here

About 1/3 of all people who are watching the YouTube videos and also the livestreams, are Dutch. The other 1/3 is German and the 3rd 1/3 from another language and don’t understand German or don’t understand Dutch. So, that’s the reason that I talk English To make it easier for everybody. But I know not everybody understands English well enough That’s the reason we got subtitles

Maybe you have friends or family of colleagues who also want to understand what I’m talking about in English. With subtitles in your language. So we can try to find somebody who can translate it for you Please let me know where you’re coming from and which language you prefer..

Video: “Business Trip” to the Dominican Republic Part 3 – Rapalje Show 75

This is no fun guys This is a hard job. This is not a holiday trip

We played all day. And yesterday. This is a business trip

What business are we going to do for the next few days?

Swimming and sailing with a catamaran

What kind of birds do live here? Some birds in tiny bikinis. A coot. It’s just the normal Dutch and German bird. A Egret over there That’s a very normal bird in Europe as well. There’re a lot of turtles. Flamingos. Doves as well . The tiny “blackbirds” who steel the food. They are from the crow family. Very small and very slender. Actually very nice. Anacondas?

Here are trees, actually growing in salt water. It’s really a very old forrest. This is just around where we are in the hotel. There’s really this nature which we don’t know in Europe. This is so different. Every plant, everything is different. The birds are the same as at home. But the surroundings and the plants are absolutely different. I saw some plants we got at home as well. They grow here for free. In the flower shop they sell it to us. T

Did we get any sun? Are we brown? It’s warm and there’s a lot of sun and yeah, we’re coming home, not brown, but red! Because the sun is really strong here.

Dieb brought his old violin because it’s very loud acoustically.
Today and yesterday we played acoustically. And it reminded me of the older days when Mace├íl and me where together as street musicians. And how hard it was, and a lot of work, just to make sound that people can hear me. That’s why I have the loud violin “Il Canone” We got a lot of problems hearing each other. William: Has nothing to do with the acoustics but with your ears..

Have we seen any sharks? It’s on the program: “See some sharks”

I think it’s funny that you travel half around the world and you get a T-shirt and colours like this: In orange, red, blue and white. When we see a flag that almost looks like a Dutch flag, like in the North of Germany, they also got a flag like in The Netherlands. Almost, a bit upside down. I will show you some other Dominican Republic flags. So this is what I was wearing

We are going to play a song. We’re going to make some music for you

So, audience, please clap!
