Virtual Walk Talk Listen with Maurice Rugebregt (episode 56)

September 8, 2021
Maurice Rugebregt [1969] had his first guitar lesson at the age of 12. As a youngster he listened to jazz artists like Miles Davis, Cannonball Adderley and his first guitar hero, Wes Montgomery. He studied guitar at the Conservatory of Rotterdam, The Netherlands. His teachers were Klaus Flenter, Ben de Bruijn and the American jazz-guitarist Joe Pass. In 1994 he went to New York City to study with established guitarists such as Jim Hall, Peter Bernstein and Peter Leitch. He graduated as a Performing Musician at the Rotterdam Conservatory in 1995.
 
Sioh Maluku [Nostalgia for the Moluccas] is was his first solo project. After graduating from the Rotterdam Conservatory, Maurice traveled to the Moluccan capitol Ambon, in search of his roots. Once there, he started his search for traditional Moluccan music. He bought tapes of local folk music and taped people singing traditional songs. Upon his return home, Maurice selected several Moluccan traditionals, arranged and recorded them accompanied by some of the best Dutch jazz, latin and Moluccan musicians. The result was Sioh Maluku, a true world-music CD containing 11 refreshingly vibrant Brazilian, jazz and pop arrangements of traditional Moluccan songs.
 
Since 1999 Maurice has been teaching Brazilian guitar and jazz harmony at the Rotterdam Conservatory. Maurice traveled to Brazil in 2003 to study with Brazilian guitarists like Ricardo Silveira and Nelson Faria. In 2004 Maurice recorded with ZUCO 103 with Brazilian singer Lilian Vieira on their unplugged album One Down One Up.  The album  NEXT (2014) was his second solo album. His third solo album was Two Blues, a tribute to jazz gitarist Jim Hall.

For many years Desiree Manders has been well-known as Desray in Dutch music. After winning the popular TV talent show “Soundmixshow” at age 18, she was given a lucrative singing deal. Real fame came when she joined 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor, The Europop hit machine that found worldwide success and provides her with an ongoing gig to this day. Desiree still considers working with 2 Brothers On The 4th Floor ia treat. “Nineties parties still draw a huge audience, and there’s always a great atmosphere. As long as the people like it and we like it, we’ll keep going. But that is not my future anymore. I can do more than sing old dance tunes. I also want to create new songs in the studio and perform with my band. The flow that is generated by a live band is magic. That’s the reason why I decided to start looking for a new musical direction, a style of my own that would give me new energy."
 
You will have an extra treat this episode of Walk Talk Listen as Desiree shared her new song "Be The Change" with us. You will hear her talk about a number of challenges she had to face in the last couple of years, but also shares why it’s important to bring positive thoughts into the world with her lyrics.
