Innovating crossovers, navigating the crosscurrents between guitar-led jazz and Northafrican & Middle Eastern music. Guitarplayer Jan Wouter Oostenrijk and his group will bring us in Belly Ecstasy! Technically gifted, original, with emotion and sense of adventure.

Jan Wouter gained international fame with his Maghreb Jazz & Sharqi Blues formation and toured throughout North Africa . New is his modified ‘Quartertone Guitar’ with which he brings the authentic Sahara sounds to the Netherlands. Reinforced with top Syrian musicians singer Shaza Hayek and Modar Salama, the band takes you on an unforgettable trip.

The concert is the kick off for the We Are Connected/ Dutch in the Desert NL Tour 2019
