Dinnertime for Amsterdam’s homeless

So Dam Local took part in ‘Koken in een andere keuken’ run by Amsterdam Verbindt at the Stoelen Project, a homeless shelter off the Marnixstraat in Amsterdam. The team cooked dinner for 45-50 homeless people and organiser, Hennie Heijmans, popped by to explain more about the scheme and how it connects those who are well off with those in need. This feature was first broadcast on Amsterdam’s Salto 1 TV channel on 18.11.14 on So Dam Local TV show, produced by Stichting Broadcast Amsterdam. Director & Editor: Cathy Leung

So Dam Cooler now we have Zitakula

Local band, Zitakula joined So Dam Local to talk about their debut EP release and launch party at Cafe Cox later in the week. And we liked their track Polyrhytmo so much we asked them if we could use it for our So Dam Local theme tune from now on. (They said “Ja, ‘tuurljk!”)

Mark Oomen (alto sax) and Pieter Wolter (bass guitar) talked parakeets, how a nine-piece band writes their songs, their band space in Amsterdam Noord and the energy behind their music.

Zitakula EP Launch Party
Thursday 10 April @ Cafe Cox
