Day 28 of the Covid19 quarantine:
"Boem Patat", by Ik en den Theo / Moi et le Theo, performed by Piet Maris.
This song was commissioned by the primary school "De Toonladder" after that other lockdown of Brussels, just after the terrorist attacks in Paris.
The school team wanted a song that the children could sing to lift their spirits.
We hope it will work its magic for the wee ones once more.

"Just play that song man!" Actually here in a medley with ‘So Tu More’...
Live we mostly play this “dubby" version, but regularly, we also do an uptempo one, adding still a 3rd song to the medley: “Ani Vodka, Ani Rumos’ (no vodka, no rum), going full speed and highly spirited at the end!
