The sound of Martha van Straaten (Laut & Luise, Berlin) can be described as the patchwork of a thousand joyful days in the sun. With fond love for colorful tunes from all over the world, she blends the musical treasures she discovers on her never-ending journey.
When travelling to one of her shining performances, she dives deep into the local culture and bsorbs the patterns, habits and sensual sensations of her surroundings just to translate all of these well collected influences into a multi-ethnic collage of sound. Martha van Straaten truly is a bright star in her genre: She brought her sound to countless countries on all five continents.
