Amsterdam Roots Festival presents artistic talent emerging from the exciting middle ground between tradition and innovation. It is especially in this overlapping area that cross-overs between cultures and styles spark to life.
During the Amsterdam Roots Festival 2018, the following concerts are planned in the BIMHUIS:
Thursday July 5 – Namibian Tales – Kalahari Encounters
Unique, rare performance of nomadic singers from the Kalahari-desert, together with the international group Namibian Tales with the Namibian born vocalist Shishani.
Friday July 6 – Africa Negra
Irresistible African rumba by the band Africa Negra, who come from the islands São Tomé and Príncipe and have been renowned in Portuguese-speaking countries for decades.
Saturday July 7 – Ke Haber? (What’s new?)
The Spanish-Jewish Ladino culture is the inspiration for this journey from past to present in music, images and stories. Featuring, among others, singer Noam Vazana and VJ Tarantula.
