Wat is er te zien?

"Medjool" means 'to not know' in Arabic. And, in this concert it also means: Two musicians who never played in duo with each other and have different backgrounds, encounter each other to make common or uncommon ground. Stanimir & Dean, Ruggero & Laia, are the four intrepid explorers.

"Medjool Dates" are described as having a "Soft and crunchy flesh, and a mildly rich and pleasing flavor", but how do they taste when they grow in sound? Maybe "Medjool Dates" don't have to please you all the time? Maybe, they can still be soft, sweet, crunchy, but.... But are you ready to hear the "but"?
