STEAM DOWN: Saturday, November 16

The Steam Down collective is a classic example of the ultimate, energetic hang. Their live performances are a constant interaction between musicians and their audience, and nationalities, languages and backgrounds are transcended. And this is exactly what we also do with our BIRDsessions. On Saturday, November 16, Steam Down will come to Rotterdam to jam during BIRDfest with the cream of the crop of Rotterdam, including the artists participating in the talk.


The Buidling Blocks van Building Blocks
