This week in SoundCHECK! Douwe follows singersongwriter Kira for a day.
Kira is among other things known by the program of Giel Beelen; "De Beste Singer-songwriter van Nederland". Douwe follows Kira for a day in which we meet her in a cafe. Kira Dekker is best to describe as cheerful, enthusiastic and very pro-active. In Winschoten we are at her old school to remember some good old memories. Here she had her first singing lessons at the theater school. Furthermore, we go along with Kira to the refugee center in Old Pekela where she gives a performance. She has written the song Helping Hand to contribute a special meaning for these people. Douwe is asking people in Winschoten what their favorite song is.

About this program:
Before a musician on stage is, the written press, composed, rehearsed and just before the gig the time comes for the Soundcheck!
Soundcheck is the new music on Podium.TV. We are visiting a wide variety of musicians from the north. (Cover) bands, DJs, Dutch singers and singer-songwriters; musical northern Netherlands is discussed. Where they rehearse and how this is going to? How do you write a new song? And how does a CD presentation?
So we end up in old garages, nostalgic rehearsal rooms, but also in professional studios and tasty busy music venues. Additionally, you can every week to enjoy a wide variety of video clips and a classic "golden oldies" from the old box.
Tip the editors when you know a great band and want more of it as a groupie know.
