BIRD Jazz Club is located under the Hofbogen in Rotterdam and offers a programme of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk and new electronica. In the last century, the area around the Hofbogen had a rich music tradition. BIRD not only wants to revive the jazz past, but also wants to update it for the 21st century. Jazz and related genres like soul, latin & funk, hiphop, afrobeat and electronica form the core of the music programming, complemented by other jazz-related art disciplines such as performance poetry, film and visual arts. Before or after a concert you can have a pizza.
Pantropical and Anadolu Ekspres share many common traits. They both scan non-western spheres in search of thrilling music culture, audio artefacts from the old days and the young trailblazers. They both love Booty Carrell. They both recommend the cassette excavations of Osdorp Tapes.
