My Baby at Pohoda 2016

If you missed out on Dutch band My Baby’s show at St. Vincent de Paul low threshold night shelter, you will get another chance to see them at the 20th edition of Pohoda Festival. The band combines funk-blues roots with dance music. This mix of styles wills you to dance and fall into (according to band’s fans) the so-called voodoo trance. We saw them live and can confirm that they are one of the best up-and-coming bands in Europe.

My Baby was formed by siblings Joost and Cato van Dijck and guitarist Daniel Johnston from New Zealand in 2012. A year later, they released their debut album named Loves Voodoo with socially conscious lyrics pointing out various negative phenomena in society. Their second album Shamanaid saw its release in May this year. Joost says they “borrow from the rich history of folk music from all around the world and bring it to the moment of now.”


With high-quality records and a number of live shows (150 a year), they made it to festivals such as Glastonbury or Sziget. They also opened for artists such as Larry Graham and Seasick Steve (who said they are the future of music). According to Q Magazine, their music “will haunt your dreams for weeks” and Clash says the band “match classic songwriting to a keen exploration of sound.” In our opinion, you should listen to one of their songs, which clearly show that the band’s energy is worth seeing live.
