The Soul Travelers @ Rollende Keukens 2014

The Soul Travelers are an acoustic band based in Amsterdam, featuring Chicago rapper Donnie Adams on the mic, bringing you beautiful and penetrating poetry, Dutch musician/producer Guido Schotten (aka G-DO) delivering melodic tunes on acoustic guitar, German percussionist Bernt Nellen playing funky rhythms on the pandeiro, and Mark Nieuwenhuis beautifully gluing it all together with his trumpet. They are often joined on stage by their fellow Goal Music Group member Shishani, a soulful singer/songwriter from Namibia.


"One of the best upcoming bands in town, The Soul Travelers offer a unique experience, capturing their audience in the present and hypnotizing with their unique music and lyrics." - The Holland Times, September 2014
