CHIEKO DONKER DUYVIS (young creator)

Purchased tickets are valid for the whole evening.

Certainly a night to remember featuring two large groups of fascinating young musicians with their very own style. 


The Guy Salamon Group have just released their 2nd album ‘Creatures! Creatures!’ The line-up of this 8 piece band reads like a ‘who-is-who’ of a new generation of creative Amsterdam musicians from all corners of the world. Let’s see how many of them we can fit on our stage to perform the original compositions of their remarkable drummer and bandleader.


  • Guy Salamon – drums, compositions
  • Alistair Payne – trumpet
  • Ian Cleaver – trumpet
  • Josè Soares – alto sax
  • Lucas Martinez – tenor sax
  • Teis Semey – guitar
  • Youngwoo Lee – piano
  • Brodie Jarvie – bass




Chieko Donker Duyvis is the featured ‘Jonge Maker’ (Young Creator) at this year’s Grachtenfestival. On the Roof will be the first venue to present a preview of her new Ensemble, consisting of co-creators rooted in both classical and Brazilian/ South-American music.

Young Creators

Each year, there’s a tremendous amount of talent graduating from Dutch conservatories or coming to Amsterdam from abroad. We have always been trying to make enough room for upcoming artists in our program. This year, we’d like to take it a step further: in collaboration with the Van Bijleveltstichting, we offer 3 chosen talents a sustainable boost for their career: in mentoring sessions with Tami Toledo Matuoka, they will get new insights in career planning, project management, PR and other skills that are essential to survive in the music business. Furthermore, Sophie Conin will produce a video profile that they can use to present themselves to other curators, journalists, fans etc
