Born and raised in the Netherlands. I started playing flute at age 10 and added baritone saxophone at age 18. My love for jazz started through playing the baritone saxophone in a big band. I currently play baritone with The Skyblasters bigband and tenor/flute in a Skajazz band Dr Bird & Co. Since I met Delbert I have discovered new ways of making music. Together we started Almere Jazz Concerts to create a unique stage in Almere to give jazz and jazz musicians a place to be!
Born and raised in Suriname , currently living in The Netherlands.
I got to know jazz music through my father, Freddy August Liems. As a great fan of this style of music, he has always played records by the most famous Jazz musicians at home.
I still have a very warm heart for Jazz music and I hope one day to be able to play this style of music myself as an amateur guitarist.
