DUNE SESSIONS january 2017 live recorded and filmed in The Hague Holland

'when you lock up 13 creative souls and their partners in one house for one weekend at the edge of a country, beautiful things might happen...A magical salto mortale, here`s what it looks like!'

Three days of living together, working, sharing, gifting, making music as if it was our final moment.

Inspired by the famous Transatlantic Sessions, we created a creative pressure cooker, without an audience. Every musician was asked in advance to share a song that they would love to play around with, work on it in small groups and re-arrange.

EP Gloomy Sunday Troost & Drost in Japan release december 1st!

cello piano duo cross-over world, classical and own written piano cello songs.
