If you walk in the Kalverstraat you probably will hear the music from, as we call in Dutch ‘draaiorgel’, a street organ. In the past, the people really had to spin the wheel to turn up the music but nowadays a small engine does the work. It is something typical you might see in crowded Dutch shopping streets.
