My Jubileum Year In Spring 2024!
Dear Music Friends,

Middle spring has arrived, and we hope it finds you well. We are thrilled to share that inspiration has struck us profoundly, propelling us into the heart of creating music that resonates with individuals from diverse ages and cultures. Our journey has been marked by several remarkable performances, each celebrating a significant year in my career as a musician, songwriter, and producer.
Looking ahead, an exciting lineup of concerts and festivals is on the horizon. For organizers interested in bringing our music to your events, please know that we welcome any gigs/concerts/performances with open arms.

Celebrating 45 Years of Musical Excellence
Celebrating 45 years on stage, I've toured globally with my bands, now mainly
offering a vibrant mix of jazz, funk, hip-hop, pop, Latin, world, and dance music.
Last year, I was honored in the Netherlands as the most touring female artist of 2022. Reflecting on the countries I've performed in brings back fond memories and the wonderful people I've met.
My Journey Through Time: Compiling Memories and Melodies
I'm currently working hard on making compilations of videos, audio, and photos from my performances at festivals, clubs, and other events for this jubilee year.
If you have any photos, videos, or even secret bootleg recordings, please share them with me to enrich this collection.
This spring, we're jazzing up your newsletter with a spotlight on Saskia Laroo's remarkable 45-year voyage through music. Known for her vibrant fusion of jazz, encapsulating everything from traditional to contemporary sounds, Laroo has not only made an indelible mark on the genre but also on the hearts of fans worldwide. As we celebrate her musical legacy, we also look forward to the array of performances she has lined up. Join us in this jubilant season of jazz, where history and future meet in the melodious soundscape of Saskia Laroo's world. Don't miss the chance to be part of the ongoing journey of this legendary jazz virtuoso!
