Gypsy, blues, Reggae, ska and jazz-funk. Find yourself the stamp clap and jump for the road ahead with Vagabundos.

With thanks again to Sarah for her thoughts.

These six people are like family, the way a band should be, doing everything for the band, seeing it as a profession. No other bands involved, no mother in law coming by, no excuses for not being there all the time. The music that Vagabundos plays, according to Adam, is street music. Every song is a mixture of reggae, funk, jazz and blues, even hip-hop rhythms.

In one year they have gathered 1900 followers on Facebook, released an EP, played all over Belgium and they’re preparing a full album with 11 songs. Their main strength is the live-performance. The public already knows that an evening with the Vagabundos is like dirty dancing in a Turkish steam bath.
