Netherlands-based Italian jazz pianist and singer Francesca Tandoi has been hailed by critics and peers as a rising jazz star and one of the most enthralling young talents on the European jazz scene.
She moved to the Netherlands in 2009 to study jazz piano and singing at the prestigious Royal Conservatory of The Hague, graduating cum laude in 2013. She earned her master’s degree from Codarts in Rotterdam in 2015.
In just a few short years, she has earned international acclaim as a world-class pianist and vocalist. She has performed with some of the finest Dutch and international jazz musicians.
She has toured and performed at some of the most noteworthy theatres, jazz festivals, and clubs around the world.
Her stage presence is praised time and again as an explosion of swing, strong and sophisticated.
Jazz journalist David Alston of South Africa said, “She has a flawless technique and the ability to swing like the clappers. The audience is simply knocked out by her playing.”
Legendary jazz pianist Monty Alexander said about her: “Francesca Tandoi is a supremely tasteful swinging piano player. Her vocals are exquisite, her compositions are melodic and memorable, and her arrangements are extremely thoughtful.”
