We are Amsterdam's caspian hat dance
We play original and traditional gypsy music, klezmer music, misbehaved drunken village wedding music, southern italian pizzica, and pretty songs sung in Roma on Bolivian mountaintops.
We have played nearly everywhere conceivable
in amsterdam and have toured holland, germany and eastern europe. we play in bars, squares, cafes, squats, and concert stages, in your living room and on your rooftop.
We are a street band that plays in sold-out concert halls and a concert-hall band that plays in plazas and squatted buildings.
We sing for the kurdish-iranian daf, arabic darbuka, african dum-dum, violins, accordion, guitar, mandolin, eternal tambourine, double & electric bass, andean charango & quena, concert flute, gypsy water-can, and our own voices.
We sing in german, italian, roma, dutch, english, spanish, and some languages we made up ourselves.
Nothing you can see or hear on this website compares to seeing us live.
