With an international career filled with collaborations with Brazil’s best musicians including Ivan Lins, Dori Caymmi, João Bosco, Nelson Faria and many others, Dutch singer Josee Koning is Holland’s leading lady in Brazilian music.
Josee was the co-founder of the legendary Brazilian fusion group, Batida, in 1980, which recorded three albums, toured internationally and played at the North Sea Jazz Festival. Her latest album ‘The Chamber Music Project’ with the international band ‘Who’s the Bossa?’ received worldwide appreciation; another jewel in Josee’s vast discography.
Her cooperation with Belgian piano player Tars Lootens started when Tars invited Josee to sing his compositions on his first solo album. Tars is a well known composer, pianist, arranger and orchestrator for movies. He is also known for playing with Johan Verminnen and Toots Thielemans.
