He has appeared in locales from Paris to Shangai, from Bangkok to Rio de Janeiro, with a few lesser stops along the way (ask him about his elephant ride through the jungle to Chang Rai). His carefully selected songs range from the songs of Charles Aznavour, Brel, Piaf, to Piazzolla. Bloem has always felt at home in these traveling styles and sings in five languages. He sings with passion and European charm. He has been called a consummate entertainer. “Riveting show, with a passion that binds the audience to him.” (Cabaret Scenes) “Bloem comes across as part bohemian and part boulevardier, with the sparkle of a showman.” (Backstage). In April, Bloems brings his new show to Holland and Germany, and in May “Without Borders” opens in New York.
This is his first cabaret show in San Miguel and Bloem already feels at home. “This magic city has the energy of serendipity—all kinds of miracles are taking place daily.” The show is a journey of self-reflection and will benefit Colectivo 41, San Miguel’s only LGBT organization, working with youth on issues from HIV prevention to bullying and suicide prevention. Colectivo 41 works to develop politically conscious young leaders fighting for the right to live and love without fear of violence. Please join us and thank you in advance for your support.
