Saskia Laroo 
Eclectic Virtuoso, Performing Her Own Original Music Worldwide
Celebrating 45 years of Live Performances & 30 years of Laroo Records
Dear Music Friends,
Summer is around the corner but we're still in Splendid Spring feelin' good and we hope you do too! Time flies working very hard behind the scenes on our new songs, preparing our music projects and tours, while also performing.
My record label: exciting news
  • Also Laroo Records has now a Spotify channel and just published its first playlist with vintage funk, soul and jazz from this and the previous century.

Our live performances:
We gigged a lot in April and May and hopped over the ocean and back a few times. We played in the Netherlands, a.o. at Royal Jazz with Hans Dulfer, in the US at the McLean Center, at the Fun Fest in Turners Falls, MA and in Canada. 
Now we're back in the Netherlands and look forward to our 3-day artist-in-residence at Festival Jazz Aan De Sjtasie in Swalmen, a recording performance at New Space Studio in Den Haag, concerts at Live Aan de Waal in Nijmegen, and more! See below for some of our upcoming shows, more info about our bands, and throwbacks.
