Festival Magia

Festival Magia is back for it's third edition in downtown Rotterdam: the area around the infamous Witte de Withstraat! Surrounded by lively bars and restaurants in the middle of Rotterdam's art district, festival Magia presents 2 days and nights filled with international music, free access. Live performances, DJs, movie screenings, art, live radio, a talkshow and a vinyl market, plus 2 sweaty nights in Rotterdam's finest clubs. Expect the best of the unknown from the entire world.


V2_Klub is V2_’s platform for showcasing experimental music. V2_Klub seeks to build upon V2_’s rich history of live experimental music at the interface of art, technology and society. On Saturday 24th of August we are collaborating with Festival Magia to bring you an extra edition of V2_Klub focused on non-western musicians.

Niti Ranjan Biswas

Niti Ranjan Biswas teaches Indian Music at the World Music department of Codarts Rotterdam. He is an open-minded and keenly sensitive percussionist, firmly grounded in traditional styles of Tabla playing, as well as a versatile accompanist in Jazz and experimental ensembles. His subtle and rhythmically complex performance style reflects an extraordinary level of maturity and attention to compositional detail, rendered in a gutsy, playful and polished manner.

Sourakata Koité

Born in 1955 in Malème, Senegal, a Malinke-speaking area. As Sourakata says, “All the Koité are musicians!” He is indeed a member of a family of djéli (or griot in french), the hereditary caste of musician-storyteller-historians in West Africa. Awesome Tapes From Africa reissued his album En Hollande, immaculately-executed (mostly) solo kora epics recorded near Delft, Holland in 1984 with two Neumann mics in an old converted chicken coop.
