Elandsgracht festival 14 Sept 2008

Elandsgracht festival 14 Sept 2008

I don’t think the japanese invented karaoke. When you see how much fun the Dutch have with watching local crooners singing over backing tapes of old Johnny Jordaan or Andre Hajes songs, and getting drunk, and swaying to the haunting melodies (and joining in wailing with singers), you would have to believe that it’s an invention from the Netherlands.

Last weekend the local bar “Cafe de Jordaan” had it’s annual fest. Stage, beer, singing. No trouble, just some boozed up jolly folks. And for some strange reason many polished up Harleys (and their similarly polished up owners).
