Sodade Festival |

Experience the musical diversity of the Cape Verdean Islands in the heart of Rotterdam


Sodade Festival

Visit the Sodade festival on the 4th of June at the Doelen and get to know the beauty of these Islands when it comes to music.
Sodade is known as an expression for longing for the nostalgic warmth of the home country which is difficult to express with words but luckily can be felt during the festival by enjoying the variety of music offered during the festival.
Surrender yourself to the chill festival modus while listening to the melancholic stories performed by national and international Cape Verdean musicians who will perform in several concert halls. We guarantee you can’t stand still and will be touched by the purest music.

Taste the enticing mixture of cuisine from the islands with the local drinks and finger soulfood that will be served during the evening.

The festival is suitable for all ages.
