Raquel Kurpershoek Jaldón, born in 1998 in Amsterdam, raised between the Netherlands and Spain. From a very young age she developed a great love for music. She has studied different musical genres at the Rotterdam Conservatory of World Music “Codarts”, specializing in Latin American music. Raquel Kurpershoek grew up in a family where art was always present. From an Andalusian mother who is a flamenco dance teacher, she learned joyful liveliness, rhythms and melodies in combination with dance. Her father, an art historian, writer and traveler, taught Raquel from his travels the enormous musical wealth of each country he visited. In Raquel’s house there was never a lack of musical memories of the trips he made to Argentina, Ecuador, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, India, Cuba. In Raquel’s first EP entitled “Mil Cosas” we can feel all these musical influences. A musical walk through Latin American geography. As with visual art, the family visited many museums every weekend, where her father told stories about the works of art on display. All of this has influenced Raquel’s love for the diversity of art forms and contributed to forming her dreamy character.
