Kika Sprangers

The Netherlands

More info


With her sparkling phrases and velvety sound combined with compelling compositions, the Dutch saxophonist, composer and band leader Kika Sprangers (Nijmegen, 1994) is one of the most captivating musicians in the country. Kika’s music comes from her own experiences, entering her listeners through emotional and poignant playing. In her own words, “the greatest compliment I can get is when a listener is touched by my music.” Kika is a driven person, has integrity of the highest order and completely surrendering herself to the music. 

Kika is inspired by masterful portrait photographers such as Anton Corbijn, strong character writers such as Griet op den Beeck and cinematic artists such as the Norwegian saxophonist, Mette Henriette and like her idols, she wants to capture the deep serenity that characterises the heart of her music. Her method is about fusing vulnerability with strength expressing itself in a predilection for both unorthodox line-ups and impactful artistic choices. Expect anything from lush symphonic passages to charged, meaningful silences. Her first love is jazz, along with her other musical inspirations such as twentieth century composers such as Arvo Pärt and Ravel, and these influences can be heard in her work with the string ensemble Pynarello
