When: 17 and 23 September
The band is made up of five people from Canada, Peru, the Netherlands and Suriname. 'That's how we came up with the name: Ca-Peru-Ne. When Sampa from Suriname joined us we decided to leave the name as it was and not to change it to Caperunesu.' Ben's not the only one with a nickname. The drummer is known as Pulpito - octopus, Johan from Wageningen goes by the name of El Rojo - the redhead - and the deeply religious Sampa is called 'El Pastor'. Benito: 'I've forgotten where the nickname Tequila came from but it stuck with the rest of them.' It would seem the gentlemen are not averse to a little tipple on the job.
So dust off your dancing shoes and loosen up your hips: Caperune is playing from 10.00h on 17 September in tent 69 at the Droeffeest, and from ten o'clock at the Overkant café on 23 September with a flautist as special guest.
