Sunday september the 6th, the third edition of the Amsterdam Jazz Festival takes place at the Amsterdam ArenA. To honour his 60/75 jubilee year, Hans Dulfer was consulted to select the artists that will play on this very special edition: Dulfer's Choice!

Next to many Dutch top acts (like Candy Dulfer and de Deeldeliers) Dulfer invited one of his absolute top favourites to perform at the festival: the world famous saxophonist/ vibraphonist Manu Dibango (81, born in Cameroon, since long a French inhabitant).
Manu Dibango had a massive hit 'Soul Makossa' in 1972. This exciting song had a strong influence on 'dance' music as we know it today. Did you know that the remake of Soul Makossa by Yolanda Be Cool is a hit once again?

Next to all the great artists he invited, Dulfer will perform with his own band of course!
