Rock and Diversity

There is also a high rock content. Massada brings percussion rock with Latin rhythms, Korishanti mixes pop music with upbeat Italian folk, Majaz mixes rock and jazz with the khaleeji music of the Arabian Peninsula. And Lazywall will blow you away with their impressive Moroccan alt-rock!

Local Talent and World Repertoire

Once again, two groups from Amersfoort, Wilskracht and Slagwerk KAMV, have renewed their program for this festival with worldly repertoire. On Sunday afternoon, the Musica Mundo Orchestra will premiere with new artists. The Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra and Thijs Borsten have invited Turkish opera star Aylin Sezer and Moroccan singer Zainab Afailal for a unique fusion of classical music from various cultures.

Two Parades and New Program

This year there are no less than two parades. On Thursday, June 27, percussion group Bloco033 marches through downtown streets and squares with Brazilian samba, and on Saturday, brass band Remork & Karkaba travels with Moroccan gnawa musicians and dancers from Neptune Square to the festival grounds starting at noon.

New to the program are DJs spinning on the square between and after the acts and an afterparty with an Afro jam session in Fluor that will continue into the night.

No matter where you are from, you are welcome at Musica Mundo!
