Jopie Jonkers harp and voice.

Singer / harpist Jopie Jonkers specialises in Latin-American music (including Argentine and Venezuelan) and French chansons. Love, tenderness, happiness, loneliness, jealousy, death, things that are as old as humanity itself are expressed in her songs in a unique and poetic way. Jopie studied singing at the Brabant Conservatory in Tilburg and studied the Venezuelan harp and the Paraguayan harp with various musicians (including Kenneth Ecury / Roberto Guarani) and developed from her very own magical playing and vocal style.
