Ad Wammes, composer
Compositions: Cigaria
Cigaria was commissioned by ‘Grey Special Projects’ on the occasion of the 175th anniversary of the House of Hajenius and developed in close collaboration with Gregor Frenkel Frank.
Hajenius is a cigar brand of high quality and owns one of the most beautiful cigar shops in the world.

Cigaria is a musical trip around the world of tobacco.
It consists of 8 parts. In part 1 we start off 175 years ago on a V.O.C. ship sailing to the Dutch East Indies and in part 8 (175 years later) we come back to celebrate Hajenius’ jubilee.

* On this occasion a very beautiful book (including a pop-up store) about 175 years of Hajenius has been published, which includes a CD with the studio-recording of Cigaria.
All this beauty can be obtained for 34 euro at shops trading Hajenius cigars and at
‘The house of Hajenius’, Rokin 92-96 Amsterdam.
