United Vibrations – Willem Wodka Award

 

 

 

 

 

 

United Vibrations were presented with the Willem Wodka Award 2013 when they headlined the Numoonfest ‘Space Is The
Place’ festival at ‘Grounds’ in Rotterdam on 13th December.

Sun Ra has been an influence on their music from the very beginning, with their first release, ‘Ra!’, making its debut on Winter Solstice 2010.

Willem Wodka was not only a good friend of Sun Ra’s, but he also founded the infamous ‘Sunship Jazz-Bunker’ where many jazz greats have played, so it is indeed a very fitting award.
