The sound of Martha van Straaten can be described as a patchwork of a thousand joyful days in the sun. With a preference for colorful melodies from all over the world, she mixes the musical treasures she discovers on her endless journey.

When she travels to one of her brilliant performances, she dives deep into the local culture, absorbing the patterns, habits and sensual sensations of her surroundings, only to translate all these well-collected influences into a multi-ethnic sound collage. Martha van Straaten is truly a shining star in her genre, taking her sound to countless countries on all five continents, happily performing in small-town clubs and on the main stages of the biggest festivals on the planet, and leaving behind an enthusiastic audience.
