Music MeetUp - Episode 2: Encounter
Apart from manoeuvring border crossings, administrative paperwork, coping with jet lag and many other logistical issues, life on tour first and foremost provides fertile grounds for interacting with other people. People who the artists have never met before, or will never meet again. This leads to beautiful, funny or intriguing encounters, from strangers who offer help when an instrument trolley breaks to a random encounter with Paul McCartney.
Music MeetUp is a production by Music Meeting. In this series, you get to know the people behind the music, the stories behind the tracks, the musicians who play at our festival. From Hungary to Brazil, from Ghana to the Netherlands, they give you a peak into their lives as artists and the context in which they create their beautiful music. In their own words and through their experience they tell you about their life on the road, magic encounters, exciting inspirations, culinary delights and more…
