Ruwhel Emers and his Bigi Blues Band take you on a blues journey with a unique Caribbean hip-hop flavor. Born on the beautiful island of Bonaire and raised in Rotterdam, Ruwhel’s talent shines through in his hyper-personal theater play ‘Sins of a Child’ and as part of the successful rap group, Wat Wat Is.
At a live show with Ruwhel and the Bigi Blues Band, you’ll feel transported to a smoky 50s blues cafe somewhere in the Caribbean. The soulful band, seductive singer, and entertaining frontman will take you on a journey, proving that heavy, honest stories and parties can blend seamlessly. Ruwhel shows that blues is a diverse genre that reflects a state of mind and feeling, a tool to express pain while also providing an opportunity to dance.
In 2022, the band focused on Rotterdam, performing at festivals such as Rotterdam Unlimited, Get Loose, and Eendracht Festival, winning the Grand Prix of Rotterdam. Ruwhel also founded his own talent development platform, Levels, making an impact in the music community.
With a rock-solid foundation in Rotterdam, the band is set to conquer the rest of the Netherlands in 2023, having recently signed with On Track Agency. The band recently broke Doornroosje alongside friends De Likt, and in March, they’ll be playing at Grasnapolsky. Get ready to experience the soulful and electrifying sound of Ruwhel and the Bigi Blues Band as the Rotterdam Blues takes over the country next summer.
