The new generation in Poland

A mixture of folk tunes, with alternative pop and punk beats. Poland has several well-known classical composers as well as jazz musicians.  However, we can observe how the new music scene exploded. Unfortunately, this music is not internationally recognized. Therefore, I would like to encourage you to have a closer look and present one of the modern artists of the new generation- Monika Brodka. Her professional career started, as in the case of most young singers, during an audition for a music show. She won the third season of the Polish TV competition “Idol” in 2004 at the age of 17. The prize was to record a debut solo CD, which was called “Album”. The first two records of the […]

Golden Earring

The oldest still existing rock band from The Hague since 1961. In 1961, when the 13-year old George Kooymans (guitar), his 15-year old neighbor friend Rinus Gerritsen (bass guitar) and another 15-year old neighbor friend Fred van Hilst (drums) decided to begin a band, they named it The Tornados. But they discovered there was already a band in The Hague called The Tornados so afterward, they changed their band name into Golden Earring. I’ve been drivin’ all night, my hands wet on the wheel. The most famous song of Golden Earring is definitely Radar Love and also one of my favorites, of course. The song was recorded in 1973 and the band went international because of this song. For example, […]

Reitores querem discutir o E.S.

“Vamos ter um ano de eleições, os partidos estão a fazer programas eleitorais, vão fazer programas de Governo e o nosso objectivo é fornecer elementos de conhecimento do ensino superior para esse debate”, disse Maria de Lurdes Rodrigues, reitora do ISCTE. Os reitores vão iniciar 2019 a discutir os problemas do ensino superior, convidando para o debate instituições, alunos, académicos, mas também decisores políticos, para, em ano de eleições, tornarem públicas as questões que querem ver nos programas eleitorais.

Die Ärzte

Today’s blog post is about a musician from my home country. Therefore, I decided to write about the popular band “Die Ärzte”. Since my early childhood, I have been a huge fan of this band. Perhaps this sounds a bit strange due to the fact that the band is considered to be a punk rock band but I still enjoy listening to their songs and watching their videos. Let me give you some information about this band. The band was founded in 1982 in Berlin by Bela B and Farin Urlaub, who are two of the three band members. Farin Urlaub, the guitar player, Bela B the drummer and Rodrigo Gonzales were part of this band until their breakup in […]

Dezembro é mês de chuva de estrelas

Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro e, depois, entre os dias 17 e 26. Para apreciar estas chuvas de estrelas não é necessário nenhum equipamento específico, basta olhar para o céu. Durante esta semana, vai poder assistir a uma chuva de estrelas — ou melhor, de meteoros das Gemínidas. Em Portugal, o fenómeno vai ser visível de 14 a 17 de Dezembro, apesar de já ter começado no dia 4 deste mês, mas com menos intensidade. “Popularmente, é conhecida por chuva de estrelas, mas o que de facto estamos a ver é um enxame de meteoros, pequenas partículas de poeira ou restos de rochas que entram na nossa atmosfera e começam a arder.

Mein kleiner grüner Kaktus

An example of how Max Raabe’s music transcends time and space. Max Raabe enriches the musical landscape both nationally and internationally by reviving chansons from the 1920s and 1930s, re-interpreting contemporary songs, and composing film scores. In his early childhood, Raabe became passionate about music and joined a children’s choir. To further develop his talents, he attended singing classes and ultimately decided to study music at the Berlin University of the Arts. In Berlin, he soon found like-minded people and established the Palace Orchestra in 1985. The orchestra specialized in performing music from the 1920s and 1930s. A decade later, the orchestra released a series of songs, one of which appeared in a German film production. Ever since, the orchestra […]

Embracing a city

When I think about Amsterdam, I think about the sensory experiences of the city. The sound of tourists’ suitcases rolling over cobblestones, the penetrating smell when you pass a coffee shop in one of the alleyways or the rain on your skin when you’re cycling to the other side of town. I think about crowded cafes when our football team plays. How whole streets turn orange, our national color, and the excitement on people’s faces. How people cheer when our team scores and how the cafes turn to silent mumbling and cursing when the other team scores. How you can’t get out of these places without having had a beer shower or being hugged by random strangers when the orange […]

A small Dutch village

Smell the freshly cut grass, look at the swallows and make a trip on the tractor. Kolderveen is an extremely small village where you can find a lot of cows, horses, tourists and many seniors on electric bicycles. Literally, Kolderveen consists of only one street which is almost 2,5 km long. I think with around 200 inhabitants there live many more cows and horses then people. The Netherlands has twelve provinces, Kolderveen belongs to the province Drenthe which lies in the north of the Netherlands. Three of the provinces , included Drenthe, in the north of the Netherlands are well known because of the meadows, farms and sober people compared with the environment of the four biggest cities called the […]

More cows than people

A hidden region between some alpine mountains. On first sight, the Bregenzerwald may seem a bit boring, but well, it isn’t. We got so much more to offer than just cows and cheese, although these are deeply connected to our cultural life. This article should be about my ‘hometown’ and yes, Alberschwende is my ‘hometown’, but it’s actually a small village, inside the Bregenzerwald region, with about 3.300 people living there. Even though I’m not really the biggest fan of Alberschwende there are a few things worth mentioning. The most popular thing of ours may be the ‘KulturKäsKlatsch'”, which could be translated into ‘CultureCheeseClub’. The ‘KäsKlatsch’ takes place every Thursday next to our church. By the way, right behind the […]

My hometown, Vaduz

The capital city of a small country in the heart of Europe. My hometown is called Vaduz and it’s the capital city of Liechtenstein. Liechtenstein has about 38.000 inhabitants and in Vaduz live about 5.500 people. It’s also the town where the royal family of Liechtenstein lives. The royal family lives in the castle, which is located in the city center of Vaduz, although it’s located a little higher than the rest of the houses. We do also have 3 museums in Vaduz: the historical museum, the Hilti art foundation, and the art museum. The art museum and the Hilti art foundation contain a lot of artworks which belong to the royal family of Liechtenstein. There’s also a city train […]

Bonn, a city for everyone

A city for everyone no matter if you like celebrating or relaxing. Hello everyone and kind regards from Madeira, my name is Anne Schroeder and at the moment I’m staying in Madeira to do a voluntary service. Before I came to Madeira I lived in Bonn, which is a city in Germany that I’ll try to present to you through this text. Perhaps you have already heard of Bonn since it is one of the oldest cities in Germany and it was the capital of Germany from 1949 -1990. Although nowadays Berlin is the capital of Germany, Bonn is a big city which has around 322.125 inhabitants and many places to discover. First, there is a beautiful shopping street in the […]

Barcelona, my home city

Barcelona, attractive for everyone I am a city girl. I have lived all my life in the heart of Barcelona, watching the Sagrada Familia from my window and born in one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings in the city, Sant Pau hospital. In Barcelona you can find art and history along with modernity and diversification. In the city you can stroll through modern neighborhoods, such as Poble Nou, full of new construction. On the top of that, the historic centre of Barcelona is a beautiful medieval area: the Gothic Quarter (Barri Gòtic). Full of streets with interesting details, squares with history and famous churches. The geographical area, the food and the climate of Barcelona are some of the […]
