Last year broeder Dieleman made the soundtrack of 'Land van Verandering' (Country of Changes) in collaboration with Pim van de Werken, a documentary on the changing identity of 'Zeeuws Vlaanderen'.
On the occasion of the 200-years anniversary of 'Zeeuws Vlaanderen' Kimmo Films made a videoclip for the song 'Land van Verandering'. A striking visualisation of a region on the edge of a cultural shift.
Earlier this year the book 'Tussenland', written by Rachel de Meijer, has been published on the search for a regional-'Zeeuws Vlaamse'-identity. In this book a chapter has been incorporated on broeder Dieleman, who embodies this search for a regional identity, both on a musical and a personal level. His recent 'Jan de Prentenknipper' walking-tour is a perfect illustration of this cultural search for identity.

I am Oak just came back from their one week mini-tour in New York City. They played five shows, two of which were part of the amazing Northside Festival in Brooklyn (featuring Beirut, Fuck Buttons, The War On Drugs, Sharon Van Etten and many more)!
Especially the show with Dan Croll at the Music Hall of Williamsburg was amazing!
More on I am Oak's NYC adventure next week!
