How could that lady be so funny?

Brigitte: GOOD EVENING MIDDELBUG! HOW ARE YOU?

Audience: FINE!

Brigitte: ARE YOU WET?

Audience: YES!

Birgitte: DID YOU HAVE DINNER?

Audience: YES!

Brigitte: WHAT DID YOU EAT?

Audience: chicken, salad, chips, soup, pasta, stampot (noise)

She is hilarious. It happened that I won a ticket for her concert without even knowing who she was. Well, she is Brigitte Kaandorp and I attended her concert last night at Zeeland Nazomer Festival in Middelburg.  The rain and the wind were not any obstacles for the audience and obviously everybody entertained. So did I!

Brigitte Kaandor is a Dutch cabaret singer. I have never been acquainted   before with that music style. I liked it, or at least I liked the way Brigitte performed.  Not only because her texts are full of hummer and energy, but also because the melody of the songs is some how “jumpy”.  Her voice is specific – she controls the tones although it seems she tends to caws.

In unison with her ridiculous outfit (red dress with a feather scarf,  age- appropriate or perfect for the genre I guess), the acting was excellent.  She lied on the stage then got off the stage to greet the people.  She even made the public dance a stupid choreography, well appropriate for kids. But it was fun. Brigitte was able to combine acting and singing, even playing an instrument like a piano or a small guitar.

Although I was wet and cold, the experience was worth. I enjoyed!
