“New heroes are continually involved in jazz. Not everyone stands out, but saxophonist Kika Sprangers does”, says Amsterdam-based newspaper Parool in regards to Kika’s debut ‘Leaves Of Lily’. The EP (over 37 minutes of music) contains studio and live recordings.

At the age of 23, Kika Sprangers quickly makes a name for herself in the landscape of Dutch jazz, both as a saxophonist and composer. She was asked to compose a suite for the reknown Amsterdam Grachtenfestival 2017 and won a B-Jazz Award for best arrangement during the International B-Jazz competition 2018. She was leader of the saxophone section of the Dutch National Youth Jazz Orchestra and graduated from the Utrecht Conservatory with a ‘9 plus’ (2017). Kika was also named ‘Young Vip 2018’ with a tour of many jazzclubs and festivals in the Netherlands. She will perform at the North Sea Jazz festival 2018.
