That’s what goes down at Repair Café!

On the occasion of International Repair Day 2022, it was launched, created by Baz Caitcheon of Bazzacam in collaboration with Repair Café Aotearoa New Zealand. Listen to this catchy song on YouTube and watch the volunteers of Levin Repair Café, Repair Café Nelson, Raumati South Repair Café, Ōtautahi Repair Revolution, Napier Repair Café and Blenheim Repair Café sing and dance:
Earlier Repair Café songs
In recent years, more singers and songwriters have been inspired by Repair Café. The Dutch comedian Maria Kraaijkamp, for instance, performed with ‘Hey oh, repareer je Senseo’ (‘Hey oh, repair your Senseo’) during an online event for Dutch Repair Café volunteers. The French music teacher Sophie Martin-Hautinguiraut composed a chanson to sing the praises of Repair Café. The Austrian rock group Söf has a song called ‘Der Tüftler vom Repair Café‘ (‘The Repair Café tinkerer’). Several Repair Cafés in Germany also recorded a song.
