Mezrab Cultural Center Amsterdam – HELP!

One of Amsterdam’s coolest cultural centers; Mezrab, needs your help! Sahand Sahebdivani, The founder of the Mezrab is working hard to turn their humble storytelling space into the most active story place of Europe! With 4 days left of the crowdfunding project, 8% of the needed € 25.000,- is still required.

Please read the info below and donate if you can!

After ten years, Mezrab has grown to be the place for storytelling in the Netherlands! However, we’re now bursting at the seams! People are fighting to get a proper place to sit and there’s more demand for food than mama and papa Mezrab can make at home and carry on their bikes.
It’s time to professionalize!

With your help we can move to an amazing space, the funky music hall above our current location: café Pakhuis Wilhelmina, from the first of March 2015! This move would allow us to offer a wider variety of events: music nights, dinners, dance events and storytelling events where everybody can sit.

To make this happen we need to collect enough to take over everything that makes the club a real club. Here’s where you come in. Let your heart (wallet) speak. Think of all the fun you’ve had with us over the years, or if you’re new to the Mezrab, think of all the fun you’re still to have…

In order to take over café Pakhuis Wilhelmina, we still need a minimum of € 25.000. This take over fee is for the music and light equipment, the bar, the instruments, stage, interior, exhauster and all the other things inside this café.

Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that the Mezrab will change into a commercial space. The weekly storytelling events will stay for free. But the great advantage is that we’ll also have the space to have awesome parties and events with live music, storytelling, theatre, dance and whatever you want!

So, please be generous, join us in creating a new Mezrab @ café Pakhuis Wilhelmina, right above the current Mezrab. A multidisciplinary space where we will work together with you to program extraordinary events at your convenience, for you and your friends taste!
And: you will help us to create the biggest storytelling house of the Netherlands!

Let’s go for it!

Taraf de Haïdouks in Paradiso Noord Amsterdam

In 2012 I first wrote about the Tolhuistuin: (click) , In 2014 I co-organised a party there: (click) and now I’d just like to point to you a concert of an amazing band I can’t wait to dance to in the new club on the same complex; Paradiso Noord.

The Taraf de Haïdouks is a group of Gypsy “Lautari” (traditional musicians) who come from the little modest Romanian village of Clejani in the Valachian countryside. Ever since their first visit to Western Europe back in 1991, Taraf de Haïdouks have been considered as the epitome of Gypsy music’s fabulous vitality. They consist of dozen brilliant instrumentalists and singers, with ages ranging roughly from 20 to 80 and the band members seem to have been relatively unaffected by their succes they’ve retained their sense of humour, and their way of life.

Taraf de Haïdouks consists of:
Gheorghe Falcaru: flute
Gheorghe Anghel “Caliu”: violin
Robert Gheorghe: violin
Constantin Lautaru “Costica”: violin, vocals
Marin Manole “Marius”: accordion
P. Marin Manole: accordion, vocals
Filip Simeonov: clarinet
Paul Giuclea “Pasalan”: violin, vocals
Ion Tanase “Ionica”: cimbalom

In their new album “Of Lovers, Gamblers and Parachute Skirts”, Taraf de Haïdouks are revisiting some of the old styles which have enchanted Western audiences on their earlier albums: Gypsy love songs, old-school dance tunes, Turkish-flavoured instrumentals, and poignant Romanian ballads. AND THEY’RE COMING TO AMSTERDAM on Friday February 13 TO PRESENT THEIR NEW ALBUM! Presale has started!

Admission 20, – incl. day membership.
Doors open 19:30
Supporting program: La Manouche @ 20:00
Before and after the favorite gypsy tunes of DJ Tommi
