Luminate Festival 2017

My Baby



My Baby is a Dutch/New Zealand trio based in Amsterdam that play a brand of psychedelic Tribal blues trance.
It’s a sound inspired by old blues and folk music, but played with the rawness of sixties and seventies soul and funk and an edgy trance like infusion of west african desert blues, moroccan Gnawa and indian ragas.
The band consists of Cato van Dyke on vocals and guitar, Sheik van Dyke on drums and vocals and Daniel 'dafreez' Johnston on guitars.

Together they bring a high energy, rock and roll fueled show that leans towards electronic dance music.

After a Uk tour in 2015 with Seasick Steve who has appraised their unique approach, and a release of their second album "Shamanaid' to much acclaim, My Baby has been spreading their mesmerizing live act to the approval of audiences worldwide.

Their set at Luminate 2015 was an unforgettable highlight, creating fun and playfulness iwith the mud dancing party people. We're thrilled to welcome My Baby back for Luminate 2017!


"Our interest is based on participating in an event focussed on spiritual awareness, consciousness about sustainability and a celebration through tribal gathering with respect and awareness of ancient traditions. These values are in alignment with what we try to instill in our music."
