the Surprising Persisting Spirit of
Born in the Netherlands of the roaring sixties, Supersister became a local legend in the early seventies with their first single ‘ She was Naked’, followed by 4 remarkable albums that even more established their unique place in the music scene.
In the following years until 1974 the group further developed their new and very own language of European orientated pop music, received well internationally by not the least people like John Peel and cooperated with trendsetting companies like the Netherlands Dance Theatre.
Supersisters reappearance at the LA Progfest in 2000, followed by the live DVD Supersisterious (live in Amsterdam) in 2000, proved that their music didn’t lose a bit of its crispy edge. After the unexpected loss of flutist Sacha van Geest that same year, this successful reunion came to a sudden end.
Now, some 10 years later Supersister will appear as a trio* on Nearfest 2011, with very much Sacha in mind and for the sake of the timeless spirit and humor that will always be part of Supersisters live performances.
