6 internationally successful Dutchies you might never heard of

I would assume that by now you already have some knowledge about the Dutch culture. A culture is a melting pot of many things and one of those thing are their famous people who in some way made a difference. You know Tiesto en Afrojack are from Holland, but there are many more Dutch people who really left their mark around the world. Here is a short list of some of these famous Dutchies:

 

André Rieu
André is an important violin player and orchestra leader from the Netherlands. He is not just uber-famous but also of importance in the classical music world. South America and Asia is completely in love with our André.
