Daniel Lohues - "Ten Oosten van de Iessel" from the 2009 album "Allennig III" (Greytown Pias Digital B). This song is about wisdom that comes from the East - referring to the 3 Magi in the Bible who came from the East. In this case: the east of Holland. In the video of this nice "grand" piano based song you will see 4 wise men from the East of Holland: comedian Herman Finkers, author Willem Wilmink, footballplayer Beb Bakhuys and singer-songwriter Daniel Lohues, the performer of this song. This is my choice - Lohues is much to modest to call himself a wise man from the East.

Daniël Lohues is a Dutch singer/songwriter and guitarist who embarked on a solo career in 2006 with the Allennig series of albums after establishing himself as a frontman in the groups Skik and Lohues & the Louisiana Blues Club.

Born on February 16, 1971, in Emmen, Netherlands, and based in the village of Erica, he began his career in the late '80s in a band called the Charlies. His next band was the pop group Skik. Comprised of Marco Geerdink (guitar), Maarten van der Helm (bass), and Marlen Davers (drums), in addition to Lohues (vocals, guitar), Skik made their eponymous album debut in 1995 and released several follow-up albums over the course of the late '90s and early 2000s.

Meanwhile, Lohues founded the blues band Lohues & the Louisiana Blues Club. Comprised of Keith Keyes (bass), Gralin Neal (drums), and Rob van Donselaar (keyboards), in addition to Lohues (vocals, guitar) and fellow Skik bandmember Geerdink (guitar), the Louisiana Blues Club made its full-length album debut with Ja Boeh (2003), followed by Grip (2005).

Lohues then made his solo album debut with Allennig (2006) on Grey Town Recordings. The second volume in the series, Allennig II (2008), was a Top 20 hit on the Dutch albums chart and spawned the Top Ten hit single "Baat Bij Muziek." While the third volume, Allennig III (2009), was similarly popular, reaching the Top 20, the fourth volume, Allennig IV (2010), was the most successful yet, reaching the Top Five. Meanwhile, Lohues scored a Top 40 hit single with "Sneeuwen," a collaboration with Herman Finkers on Grey Town Recordings

Lyrics:
Je moen der wel 's wezen
Veur 't werk of veur de gein
Met de auto naor 't westen
Of 's eben fijn met de trein
Mar nao 'n poosie
is 't weer mooi west
Dan wu'j wel kroepens
weer naor huus
En be'j de brugge ienmoal over
dan be'j zowat weer thuus

Ten Oosten van de Iessel
is 'n ei gien lege dop
In het land van de wiezen
Komp de zunne op

Gien mense kek joe an
op de klank van joen woordn
Van Silvolde in 't Zuuden
Tot an Delfziel in het Noorden
Standverschil is uut de mode
Daor schöt gien mense wat met op
Bobendien is daor gien tied veur
We hebben wel wat anders
an de kop

Van Zwolle tot an Emmen
Van Nordhorn tot Berlien
Gao mar 's oostwaards
in joen gedachten
Of met 'n vliegmachien
Dan uuteindelijk,
a'j aal mar deurgaon
Ko'j bij 't begun weer terecht, opzich
En dan zie' j dat de halve wereld
Ten Oosten van de iessel lig

The picture of the river "De IJssel" was made by Mary A. Boer on a ballonrace from Holland to Germany in 1912. It was published in "Het Leven" and is to be found in the National Archief in The Hague.
