8-7 SITP Orquesta del Tiempo Perdido + Joost Buis group

Space is the Place: Orquesta del Tiempo Perdido + Joost Buis group

Sunday, July 8, start first concert 20:30, entrance €8


Album release for ‘Stille’, by Orquesta del Tiempo Perdido, brainchild of Jeroen Kimman. The music on the album is hard to pinpoint. It exists somewhere between cartoon music, americana, vaudeville, and free improvisation. The result is wonderful. Or to quote Het Parool’s Erik Voermans: “His musical universe is located about 7 miles outside the known stratosphere, where life turns out to be remarkably agreeable. The music in all its uplifting originality simply defies description. Magnificent.”

Jeroen Kimman – guitar, compositions | Jasper Stadhouders – bass guitar & guitar | Joost Buis – trombone & lap steel | Floris van Bergeijk – keys | Onno Govaert – percussion | Tristan Renfrow – drums

15-7 DE RUIMTE BUITEN: King Ayisoba + Bazooka

DE RUIMTE BUITEN: King Ayisoba + Bazooka

Sunday, July 15, 16:00, €10*

* Money goes straight to the musicians!

KING AYISOBA brings the traditional kologo music from the Upper East Region of Ghana with the energy and flavor of the twenty first century. A big star in Ghana, he sings in Frafra, Twi and English, and plays the kologo, a two string guitar with a calabash gourd resonator, rhythmic and melodic at the same time. After touring with ZEA in 2012, Arnold de Boer released ‘Modern Ghanaians’ on his Makkum Recs, followed by 2014′s ‘Wicked Leaders’ and ’1000 Can Die’, with guest features by Lee “Scratch” Perry, afrobeat legend Orlando Julius and more. Tonight he plays acoustic with pure manpower on our terrace, De Ruimte Buiten!


Group initiated by guitarists Andy Moor (The Ex) and Jasper Stadhouders (Cactus Truck / Spinifex etc.) playing interpretations of Angolan popular guitar music from the 60s and 70s.

Andy Moor – guitar | Jasper Stadhouders – guitar | Marta Warelis – percussion | Miguel Petruccelli – bass | Onno Govaert – drums


Before and after the concerts, we’re expecting DJ-sets by Andy Moor, Jasper Stadhouders and DJ Getal en Ruimte (ZEA).

BTW, since you can never know with Dutch summers: in case of bad weather, we move the concert to our café on the second floor!

15:30 doors open
16:00 Bazooka
