Pekel - Mannen Van De Maas [1993 Netherlands] @192

Uploaded by request

The ensemble Pekel performs exuberant folk music from the Low Lands in its own
inimitable contemporary style. In Pekel’s set of instruments, we find traditional instruments like bagpipes, Jew’s harps, and flutes, but also “new” instruments like accordion, guitar, and double-bass.

The ensemble's name comes from a liquor that local fishermen used to drink.

Pekel was founded in 1990 and now (2013) consists of 5 musicians. The members
all are professional musicians since time immemorial, and have recorded many LPs and CDs in various ensembles (notably Perelaar).  Pekel is playing in theatres, schools, at fairs and banquets, as well as festivals worldwide.

The musicians of Pekel are not only interested in old Dutch sources, but also in the music recorded by ethnomusicologists during the 1950s and 1960s. However they like to apply modern popular music theories to their essentially traditional repertoire. In recent years they have included more and more own compositions into their repertoire. A fair part of Pekel’s repertoire consists of instrumental dance music (polka’s, waltzes, madlots).
