Poetry Alive in the House


Jeltje's third book , combined with a CD.
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.


Henri Bos 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."
Kerry Lewis, Overland
