"When it comes to jazz singing, there are major differences. Not every interpreter can enchant the audience, which is exactly what it's about in this genre. All the more surprising when a young voice emerges that evidently masters this magic. Kiki Manders has all it takes to become one of the top vocalists in the jazz world"....... "The fact that a young singer releases such a mature product is equally amazing and fascinating"...... "All in all Manders has released an incredible first album"Concerto Magazin (AT)"“As if the angels from the stuccoed ceiling in the hall joined in, that’s how Kiki Manders sounded as she presented the first title from her debut album "Love is yours is mine" in Castle Tiengen. Manders sounded refreshingly different, merging her modern compositions with free improvisations. Her voice was sometimes ethereally soft, sometimes dark, and in other moments very powerful.”Suedkurier (DE)​Manders grew up in Venlo, a small town in the south of the Netherlands. She graduated from the jazz singing program at the Conservatory of Amsterdam, where she earned a Bachelor and Masters of Music Degree under the tutelage of Sylvi Lane, Lydia van Dam and Annett Andriessen. After graduation, Manders moved to New York City to study Poetry and Improvisation. She also started writing songs in the dialect from her hometown Venlo while living in New York and recently recorded a selection of them, amongst other compositions, to be heard on her debut album „Love is yours is mine“ (Unit Records).A finalist in the Voicingers International Singers Competition and a semi-finalist in the Brussels Young Jazz Singers Vocal Competition, Manders’ “irrepressible style” makes her an “in demand musician both as a bandleader and as a sideman.” She lent her voice to Amsterdam-based saxophonist Maarten Ornsteins’ DASH!, which featured artists such as Oene van Geel and Morris Kliphuis. She performed with DASH! throughout Europe, in the Music Theatre production “Spica”, multi-disciplinary theatre performance “Brilliant Limbs“ and toured China with the band.Manders performed and/or collaborated with The Metropole Orchestra, Maarten Ornstein, Oene van Geel, Morris Kliphuis, Grammy nominee Vince Mendosa, Yuriy Yaremchuk, Jeffrey Bruinsma, Bodek Janke, Phil Donkin. She performed at world known venues and festivals such as The Bimhuis, Muziekgebouw aan het IJ, Paradiso, North Sea Jazz Festival, and the Concert Hall Amsterdam in the Netherlands, the Unterfahrt in Germany, the Sziget Festival in Hungary, the Brussels Jazz Club in Belgium, Jazzclub Jazz Dock in the Czech Republik, Jazz Club Dzyga in Ukraine, the Jazz Gallerie in Canada and at the Nanjijng Jazz Festival and the Chengdou Jazz Festival in China.Jonathan Ihlenfeld Cuniado: E-BassPhilipp Brämswig: GitarreBernd Oezsevim: SchlagzeugKiki Manders: Stimmewww.kikimanders.com
