Strap a drum to your back and look for adventure! That's what Convoi Exceptional has been doing from Berlin to Copenhagen, Paris to Rome and back to their home base in the Dutch city of Rotterdam. Over the past few years the five guys that make up Convoi Exceptional have been conquering the streets of Europe. `Performing on the streets is fantastic. It's fun getting busy shoppers to stop and listen and see them be swept up in the amazing energy produced by the beat of the drums.
Convoi Exceptional are going to give a special performance and show the movie they did while playing in the streets on New York next Friday march 12 @ De Nieuwe Anita in Amsterdam.

Planet Earth is a stunning planet, with spell-binding natural wonders and the only life known in the Solar System. But it doesn't exist in magnificent isolation. The Space Age has brought new worlds of wonder into view. Dramatic images sent back by a fleet of probes, orbiters and landers have proved these worlds to be more spectacular than we ever imagined.
