Bijlmer Steelband

For a long time, the Bijlmer Steelband was the youngest steel drum orchestra in the Netherlands and is known for its exciting performances. The repertoire is very diverse, even Beethoven’s ‘Fifth Symphony’ is featured! The instruments were commissioned and tuned in 1997 by well-known steelpan builders in Trinidad, where the instrument originated. The Bijlmer Steelband is under the inspiring leadership of Frauke Lühning and the young, enthusiastic drummers serve you a swinging Caribbean tradition with reggae, samba, conga and of course calypso.
