Hello to my multilingual blog. You will some stuff written in Luxembourgish, English or Dutch. Why? Well…..because i live in 2 countries, and some stuff I want to write in the language of the country the info is meant for…..

In case you want to really get stuff that is written in a language you don’t understand, please leave a comment.



Born in 1982 in Luxembourg, I started my musical education at the age of 6 with solfege and violin at the Conservatory of Luxembourg City. Later I took classes in classical percussion. At the age of 12 I discovered the world of latin music. I took Latin Percussion classes with Jerome Goldschmidt and later with Emanuel Baudry. After finishing my High school, with specialization in music, I did audition at the Conservatory of Rotterdam where I studied 4 years with teachers like Martin Verdonk, Lucas van Merwijk, Nils Fischer, Dirk Hauptmann, Marc Bischoff and Jan Hartong. During my studies I did trips to New York and Brazil where I took privat classes with Pedrito Martinez, George Delgado, Johnny Almendra, Armando Marção, Robertinho Silva etc. I followed a master course in musicology at the university of amsterdam and graduated with a thesis about women in Salsa.
At this moment I am living both in Rotterdam and Luxembourg

    Hi Jeanne, ik ben zo benieuwd of jij de Jeanne bent die mij een paar jaar is opgevolgd destijds in Perfume de Salsa, maar ik denk het eigenlijk wel. Dank je wel voor de leuke recensie op mixedworldmusic!
    ik had al gereageerd aan Erk en Elda Dorren, dat er een paar onjuistheden in de recnsie staan:
    ik ben niet de bandleider hoor, dat is teveel eer. Van bijna alles waarin ik speel ben ik de bandleider, behalve van dit trio, is echt een collectief iets. Ik weet niet of je nog kans ziet om dat te veranderen…ere wie ere toekomt vind ik altijd.
    En de naam van de saxofonist is niet Paul Wieling maar Paul Weiling.
    Mijn naam als muzikante is Leticia Bal, dus op zijn cubaans…nou ja kijk maar of je dat nog kunt veranderen….
    In ieder geval nogmaals, weet niet zeker of je die Jeanne bent maar ik denk het wel…
    hartelijke groet,
