About Jaleesa Clows

Jaleesa Clows (31) was born and raised in Amsterdam West. After her arts, communications and media studies in the Netherlands and Suriname she found her place in the music world, as a programmer. Soon her interest focused on radio and she has presented her own radio programme Young Urban Sound at SALTO Amsterdam for the past four years. She has also gained valuable experience as a producer at the radio station FunX. Currently Jaleesa explores new opportunities as a freelancer, making radio and podcasts.

Listening to her story, admiring her style, we invited Jaleesa to conceive and produce a radio transmission from within the iconic Aula of the school building at Schipluidenlaan 12 (once Pascal College and Calvijn College, now Broedplaats Lely), which de Appel calls home since 2017. As the area changes, Jaleesa passes the mic to our worldly neighbours to share their memories, their lyrics and their visions for the future of Amsterdam. Produced with the Team of de Appel and Kees van Zelst.
