Since that day almost two and a half years have passed, in which quite a lot of things have happened: “Captain Ben” and “Smutje Hannes” and their boat "Marianne" have actually travelled two continents, made trips to the Aborigines and some remote corners of the Himalaya Mountains, a cruise past the pirates of Somalia and an Atlantic crossing. And of course they met countless enthusiastic musicians, whom they recorded for their project. "AAA" - Australia, Asia and Africa - is the "Sailing Conductors’" debut album and is released on the two yachtsmen’s own label. For about two years, Benjamin and Hannes have captured different melodies, rhythms and voices, using their mobile recording studio. Those recordings have served as starting points for other musicians’ contributions, maybe even in another country. And sometimes the two sailors picked up their instruments themselves.
World music - in the truest sense of the word.
