Watch and listen

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

Small speakers such as a smartphone, tablet or laptop can not possibly display the deep rich sound of the beautiful double bass, sousaphone or tuba. That is why it is so important to listen with headphones or good speakers!  

Be careful: risk of rhythmic moving!

Overview of the repertoire


Swinging South American grooves in small line-up

One of the singers of the Jazz Centrale is Agnes . Agnes specializes in Bossa Nova. That is that delightful sultry rhythmic jazz music from Brazil that has taken a huge flight in the years '50 and' 60. Thanks to the beautiful songs of Antonio Carlos Jobim ("The Girl from Ipanema"), Astrud Gilberto, Joao Gilberto and many others. In this line-up With guitar it is possible to put this wonderful South American atmosphere with a small band at your party, event or business drink.

In the original Portuguese

With the Jazz Centrale we can deliver unique quality thanks to Agnes: she sings the Bossa Nova's in the original Portuguese. That gives a huge extra dimension to this Brazilian music. Where most 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 double bass and piano is very compact and brings a cozy, intimate atmosphere with it. The timbre of our music in this line-up is very mild and at a particularly pleasant volume.

Because the volume is so limited, 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 little space available for the band, then a jazz duo can almost always play. With this duo we can already occur on an area of 2 at 2 m2. And because the volume is so limited, it is not necessary that there are some meters between the band and the audience. Your guests will still be able to understand each other - even close to the band.
