No Blues

Specializing in a distinctive worldbeat hybrid of American folk, blues, as well as the rhythmically unfixed Middle Eastern traditional design referred to as taqsim, Netherlands-based No Blues contact what they enjoy “Arabicana,” and it’s really an apt term. Essentially a trio of American, Middle Eastern, and Dutch music artists, with ex-Deirdre and W.A.T. member Advertisement Truck Meurs on acoustic guitar, Haytham Safia on oud, and previous Marbletones member Anne-Maarten Vehicle Heuvelen on bass, No Blues also presented percussionist Osama Maleegi, vocalist Ankie Keultjes, and drummer Eric Vanderlest on 2005’s Farewell Shalabiye and 2007’s Ya Dunya (which also included a prominent and energetic guest place from Tracy Bonham on violin and vocals).
