Gergedan Müzik


Nynke Laverman grew up in Friesland and sings in Frisian, a language with a rich history and a great poetic quality, which is only spoken in the northern part of The Netherlands, and is considered by linguists as being somewhere halfway between English and Dutch.

For a number of years, Nynke has been passionate about all forms of Mediterranean and Latin music, from fado and flamenco to various Latin American traditions. She proceeded to create her own "Mediterranean-Frisian" style, inspired by these musical forms she has studied intensively, and sung in her mother tongue. She recorded three albums which became very successful in The Netherlands and earned her both a gold disc, an Edison (the Dutch Music Awards) and a literary prize.
