Tell us a little about your background...
Vocalist, composer and songwriter Al Goodah is a passionate believer in the power of music to uplift the spirit. His colorful repertoire draws on a rich cul tural heritage of South American and Caribbean influences and varies from jazz, soul, funk and world music.
Al Goodah strives to reach a wider audience with his melodic jazz compositions and atmospheric performance, with the fusion and blending of elements from other musical styles such as jazz, soul, funk and / or world music. Al Goodah's goal is to take out his jazz music as much as possible from the formal sphere (threshold reduction) by making not too complicated compositions and arrangements of melodies that are easy on the ear, and also to follow improvisations. You should even be able to dance on it: Let's Have Fun! Al Goodah his inspiration has always been the old traditional jazz styles.

Al Goodah's statement: if it's understandable, consumable, excitable and enjoyable for the audience, then I have achieved the ultimate art form!

Born in Paramaribo (Suriname) as Carlo Goedhart, he grew up in a family of singers and musicians. His grandfather played the guitar and had performed as a professional accompanist to silent movies. He also had a good grasp of music theory and was able to coach Al Goodah, at that time Al Goodah was 5 years old, to enter local singing competitions. At the age of 17 he became the lead singer in an up-and-coming Surinamese pop group. Later on Al Goodah decided to pursue a career as a solo artist, performing with the Big Band of a Local hotel and a Latin Combo. In 1986, he decided to leave Suriname and develop his vocal talents and musical career in the Netherlands. After pursuing musical studies at the Conservatorium in the Netherlands, he swiftly launched his Dutch stage career and has since then been in constant demand as a freelance vocalist. Al Goodah has been appearing as guest vocalist with Internationally acclaimed Dutch crossover band “Fra-Fra Sound”, notably during its highly successful Kulembanban Kid Dynamite National and International tour in (Europe, North America and South America. Goodah’s distinctive and spontaneous vocal and musical style, aims to transport the listener from the uninspiring routine of everyday life to a world rich in warmth and emotion.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
