Ronald Snijders is one of the best flutists in the Netherlands and by far the most swinging. Since he came to the Netherlands from Surinam in 1970, he has steadily built an oeuvre in which Surinam dance music, Caribbean salsa, bossa nova, funk and jazz are mixed together into unique, always danceable music. The first five (very funky) records by Snijders have become collectors’ items: much sought-after but hardly found. This inspired producers Nelson & Djosa to make the album The Nelson & Djosa Sessions. In sessions of two to three hours they brought together bandleader Snijders with musicians from all over the world, like Bassekou Kouyaté & Ngoni Ba, Avishai Cohen, Jamire Wiliams and Ed Motta. In this way they created nine scintillating new versions of Snijders’ lost songs. The recording sessions have also been chronicled in a documentary called Easy Man that will be released at the same time as the album.
