DE KIFT (ACOUSTIC)
De Kift is a Dutch band with influences of punk, fanfare, rock and pop music, founded in 1988 by Ferry Heijne and Wim ter Weele. “De Kift was born in fanfare, baptized in punk and grew up in love for music and poetry. It is cheerful music, music full of melancholy. Music that brings tears to your eyes or a grin on your face.”
Yung Tuan-Ku solo
Yung-Tuan Ku is a percussionist and music theater maker. She combines percussion and mime in her creation, works with many theater groups for children and grown-up shows. She plays all kinds of percussion instruments, household utensils, random found objects and toys. She loves to go to the thrift shops (Kringloopwinkel) to find new inspirations for her instrumentarium.

Yodel Queen is a young Amsterdam band with one leg in post-punk and one leg in the confessional. Erection problems and life in the Amsterdam cafes & pubs are discussed in detail.
DJ MARCELLE/ANOTHER NICE MESS
Surprise, adventure, entertainment and education: Four key words often used for describing Dutch DJ and producer Marcelle/Another Nice Mess. Using live (and in the studio) three turntables, Marcelle takes her mix talents to high heights. She is as much, or even more of, a musician as she is a dj.
OSCAR JAN HOOGLAND
Oscar Jan Hoogland is an improviser, pianist, composer who is working actively in the field of both music and dance improvisation in Amsterdam. Doing so he works within fixed bands and groups as well as in first time collaboration settings. Besides improvising he has composed for several theater and dance pieces and has been writing for his own groups as well as for other ensembles and soloists.

‘Adventurous, catchy Amsterdam jazz, in which influences can be heard from Mengelberg and Monk (hopping lines) or from Sean Bergin and Sonny Rollins (Caribbean atmospheres).’
The music can undeniably be classified as jazz. But then jazz of a very nice, idiosyncratic kind. In the compositions of leader/saxophonist Chris Corstens the humor and recalcitrance of the music of people like Misha Mengelberg can be found, but also melodies that Harry Bannink would not be ashamed of.

Singer, percussionist and composer from Dakar, Senegal, based in Amsterdam. Sylla learned to sing and play the music of the different Senegalese population groups in Dakar. In the Netherlands he became acquainted with jazz and improvised music. He has played with world music and jazz musicians in the most diverse combinations, music with a more or less fixed pattern, but mostly consisting of improvisations.
