Filip Eyckmans, formerly known as one of the guys from Musickness and the boss of En Frente Arte (the hotel and recordingstudio in Ronda where The Ideal Crash was recorded) has introduced a new sport.

It's called bossabal and you can get to know it on one of the following summerfestivals. According to Johnny (Eyckmans is the Johnny of Jack&Johnny Recordings, the 'label' on which the very first version of Zea and A Beatband's Jintro Travels The World In A Skirt were released) it's the missing link between Ronaldinho and Cirque du Soleil.

Update: The inspiration for the new sport has a dEUS-link. Filip saw a couple of capoeira-artists doing crazy stuff on a beach in Brazil when dEUS was there. Anyone got a clue which year that should have been?

    I would say 1997, i've read in an article that they played as only european band on a festival in Brazil that year.
