ROD SINCLAIR BAND performed SEASCAPE at the opening of the Wadden Sea National Park in RIBE. In the audience were HRH Prince Joakim, the Environment Minister, mayors and other politicians, ministry people, and about 2000 citizens.
The MUSIC is newly composed songs on Wadden Sea themes, instrumental music inspired by the Wadden Sea region, composed by Martin Schack, Jacob Pedersen, Rod Sinclair, with lyrics by Rod Sinclair.
Five musicians with widely differing backgrounds - jazz, rock, Scots folk, blues, indie, Danish folk - planted in fertile Wadden Sea silt, immersed in the salty tides, dried in the west wind .... and something new grew out of it.
