world music

Amsterdam adores live music and touring bands and acts from around the world love stopping off in Amsterdam, so world music lovers have plenty to choose from. The jazz venue Bimhuis regularly has world music programming, and so do various smaller venues such as Badcuyp, Podium Mozaiek and the Bijlmerpark Theater. Another must is the annual Amsterdam Roots festival.
