Ruwhel & de Bigi Blues Band

Step into the world of Rotterdam Blues...

Ruwhel and his Bigi Blues Band take you on a blues journey infused with Caribbean hip-hop. Born in Bonaire, Ruwhel Emers grew up in Rotterdam. He already demonstrated that he's not holding the easiest cards to win the game in his hyper-personal theater piece 'Sins of a Child'. Even as part of the successful rap formation Wat Wat Is, he managed to make entire crowds mosh while not shying away from depth.

At a live show of Ruwhel and the Bigi Blues Band, you'll find yourself in a smoky '50s blues café somewhere in the Caribbean. The soulful band, the alluring singer, but especially the entertaining frontman momentarily pull you out of your own reality. Ruwhel proves that heavy, honest stories and parties can go hand in hand. Furthermore, he proves that blues is a much more diverse genre than it's often thought. It's a state of mind; a feeling. It's a tool to talk about pain. And you can also dance to it very well. The pure-blooded entertainer doesn't lose a second of contact with the audience. Charismatically, he moves across the stage and meanwhile directs his entire band.

In 2022, the band mainly focused on their hometown Rotterdam. They caught attention with performances at festivals like Rotterdam Unlimited, Get Loose, and Eendracht Festival. In the meantime, they won the Grand Prize of Rotterdam. Ruwhel also made an impact with his own talent development platform Levels.

With a strong foundation in Rotterdam, 2023 is all about conquering the rest of the Netherlands. Recently, they signed with On Track Agency (management) and DTMA (bookings). Together with friends from De Likt, they recently tore down Doornroosje, and in May, Ruwhel & De Bigi Blues Band will perform in the final of ''De Grote Prijs van Nederland'' (''The Grand Prize of the Netherlands'').
