Jeltje's third book , combined with
Poems that explore themes of personal ancestry,
migration and change in a rapidly changing world.
Jeltje touches on feelings not only familiar to other migrants, but
on a sense of estrangement becoming familiar to many of us, living
in a globalised world. The CD opens up a further window to the poetry,
which is set here to music, ranging from ethereal and ambient to jazzy
& soft rock. After hearing the poems, the poems in print come
to life in new and surprising ways.
said that "jeltje has a voice with the sound of BJØRK
and the rhythm of the hypnotist Rasta Rostelli"
"Sultry, hypnotic, lilting
Going Down Swinging
"Reductive, certainly, but kinda nice."
