TONYA'S latest single
World première at the EUROFERIA !
was discovered when, at 8 years old, she sang in the Eurokids final and came
second with the song she herself composed “Hé doe maar mee”.
Now aged 12, she is a personality in the world of children's music. She already
has 8 singles to her name. At the end of last year she brought out her second
full album !
In 2007 the little singer is as busy as ever. She
has recorded a delightful summer song that she will perform for the first
time in public at the Euroferia. It is a flamenco song, bilingual in Dutch/Spanish: “Un
poco de flamenco”, superbly choreographed by flamenco dancer Samina
While dancing the flamenco Tonya swishes her skirts, flutters her fan and
clicks her castanets - just like a real flamenco dancer. And that is exactly
what she wants all young people to do this summer ! Visit: www.tonyafanclub.be
the Osborne bull
In 1956 the Osborne company asked Azor, the publicity agency, to come up
with a symbol to be used to promote its Veterano brandy. No-one imagined that
the chosen design would become so well known and popular as to withstand the
passage of time. The outline figure of a fighting bull drawn by the artist Manolo
Prieto was proposed as the logo. The simple solid black silhouette
of the bull was originally intended for use on the bottle labels but soon
became the emblem of the whole Osborne company.
For the three days of the EuroFeria Osborne has donated 10 such bulls, made
of wood and about one metre high, which will be painted by well known Belgian
artists and exhibited in Brussels in September, then sold, the proceeds
being given to charity.
