In 2006 Danny Kegel thought it would be a good idea to bring a suitcase full of drugs from Peru to the Netherlands…
He was immediately arrested at Lima airport, after which he was sentenced to 10 years in prison in a Peruvian cell.
In one fell swoop all his chances to make it as a musician disappeared like snow in the sun, or at least put on hold for a decade.
Following the book “POWER of ROCK” that he wrote in prison in Peru, a theater show has been created.
A performance about how to deal with culture shock, loneliness, an increasingly lost self-love, and how you can always take the strength out of yourself to choose a new life.
During the show, saxophonist Boris van der Lek (Hans Dulfer / Herman Brood / Golden Earring / Jules Deelder) talks to Danny about the bizarre and also wonderful time he experienced in Peru.
A theater show full of music, humour, passion and positivity.
