In 1970 the Surinamese-Dutch flautist and composer Ronald Snijders moved to the Netherlands. There Snijders, who's also an ethnomusicologist, became known as a musician who doesn't shy away from adventure. In a career that spans some 30 years now, he's explored and mixed many musical styles. Snijders' music consists of elements of jazz, fusion, Surinamese kaseko and kawina jazz, Caribbean salsa and bossa nova. He recorded numerous albums with his own music including Kaseko Mundial and Bijlmer Jazz featuring kawina drummers from South East Amsterdam. Snijders explores every nook and cranny of funk in his new project. Next to some obscure jazz/funk dating from his early days - the first five, pretty funky vinyl albums have become collector's items over the years - he also plays contemporary funk with new compositions.
