Fluent Portuguese

Super cool music, full of atmosphere! We couldn't have had better music than the lively jazz (double bass & piano) of the Jazz Central and the perfect vocals! Fluent Portuguese which was perfect for the Bossa Nova music. Highly recommended!

Really very important! Listen to our demos with headphones or good speakers!

Kleine luidsprekers zoals van een smartphone, tablet of laptop kunnen onmogelijk de diepe rijke klank van de prachtige contrabas, sousafoon of tuba weergeven. Daarom is het zo belangrijk om met hoofdtelefoon of goede luidsprekers te luisteren! 

Note: chance of competing!

Draai uw telefoon naar liggend om de muziek in stereo te horen!

Overview of the repertoire


Swinging South American grooves in small line-up

Een van de zangeressen van de Jazz Centrale is Agnes. Agnes is gespecialiseerd in Bossa Nova. Dat is die heerlijke zwoele ritmische jazzmuziek uit Brazilië die in de jaren '50 en '60 een enorme vlucht heeft genomen. Onder meer dankzij de schitterende songs van Antonio Carlos Jobim ("The Girl from Ipanema"), Astrud Gilberto, Joao Gilberto, en vele anderen. In deze bezetting met gitaar is het mogelijk om deze heerlijke Zuid-Amerikaanse sfeer met een kleine band neer te zetten op uw feest, evenement of zakelijke borrel.

In the original Portuguese

Of "De Jazz Centrale" thanks to Agnes we can deliver unique quality: she sings the Bossa Novas in the original portuguese. That gives an enormous extra dimension to this Brazilian music. Where most female singers in the Netherlands have to limit themselves to an English translation, Agnes can play a beautiful Bossa Nova repertoire in the beautiful original language.

Modest volume

This jazz duo with guitar and vocals or piano is very compact and creates a cozy, intimate atmosphere. The timbre of our music in this line-up is very mild and at a particularly pleasant volume.

Because the volume is so modest, you can use a jazz duo for small-scale dinners with your company, intimate wedding dinners or business meetings where the soft volume is very important.

Compact dimensions

If there is only little space available for the band, a jazz duo can almost always play. With this duo we can already perform on an area of 2 by 2 m2. And because the volume is so modest, your guests will still be able to understand each other - even when they are standing close to the band.
