Marithe Van der Aa Marithe Van der Aa

Marithé Van der Aa is a young jazz vocalist. She was born in Belgium, but spent most of her childhood in England, where she studied at a school in Brentwood, Essex. In these early years of her life, she was active as a student at the London Academy Of Music and Dramatic Art and as a member of a youth choir.

After she had moved back to Belgium, she started taking both singing and music theory lessons at a music academy. After doing that for three years, she decided to start taking private, classical singing and piano lessons as well.

At the age of sixteen, she started art school (HKJ in Hasselt), where she studied jazz vocals. She graduated in 2014 and is currently studying at the Jazz Institut (Universität der Kunste) in Berlin.

She recently won the jazz contest of Muziekmozaïek at the Gentse Feesten with her quartet and will record and release her debutalbum in 2017.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
