Here in Huanchaco & other beach parts of Peru - something strange is going on. Animals are washed on shore, dead or alive. Dolphins, seals and birds as pelicans.
No one here seems to care that much, people are just posing with them and then walk away, happy with their picture.
We would like to do something but don't know how exactly.
We hope to raise at least some awareness with this video.
A ten day festival organized by KVS (Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg) in Kinshasa - Congo to promote and stimulate exchange between Congolese artists and the rest of the world.
I was honored to share the stage for one song with Bebson de la Rue & Trionix and Dinozord.
I spent a month in Kinshasa Kongo to visit my sister. In the end we did several cool things including recording a track with two local stars: Bebson de la Rue et Dinozord.
This is the first take we filmed for the Kapaw clip. This is in front of Bebson's house and the moment he wants to start the batteries of the radio start to flip...

In the early Batman films, KapOw! used to put fists to faces. Now it brings smiles to many faces because KapOw!’s first edition was a great success!
Deep in the belly of Ghent’s former industrial site some earlybirds began transforming the Ham’s public playground using nothing but a generator and some powertools. Ramps, verts, cirbs and even some skateable historical landmarks were built. Artwork going from designer skateboards and ditto furniture to a huge graffiti mural representing the Gravensteen and even a miniature redlight district, coloured the scene for the very first KapOw! Skate&Create festival.
With the sun at it’s highest point now, the crew was putting the finishing touch to the partyscene when all of the sudden some coolcats started showing up with their skateboards. They needed no introduction and started skating like there was no tomorrow. Some of the photographers didn’t know where to look first! Massive wallrides on the one side, big-air ollies on the other..
To spice it up we even had a guest appearance by the world’s best MC! Next thing you know there’s a highest ollie contest in which the winner almost beat the national record!
Lucky thing we had a LOT of Freedom Beer to cool down
So much for the 4th of July, but it’s not over yet.. The 24th of July we’re bringing the cream of the crop (best photographs, artwork, ..) to an exhibition that will take place at the Kouter, also in Ghent.
So I was in Kinshasa with my little sister to visit my big sister who lives and works there for 11.11.11
There was so much energy that we decided to make a song with BBS and Dinozord. After the song we said 'what about a video clip?' So we hit the streets for 4 days. We asked to show the video clip on Connection Kin Festival that promotes exchange between Congolese artists and other artists worldwide.
In the end we didn't just show our clip but we actually played it live - in a more African version!
I loved it, so did the band and people!
