Al jullie moeite en mail heeft niet mogen baten.
Met maar een aantal stemmen verschil hebben we de Edison niet gewonnen. We vinden het heel erg jammer maar willen jullie wel heeeeeel erg bedanken voor de inzet en support.
Die is hartverwarmend!

Er zijn geen verliezers maar winnaars en wellicht ben JIJ wel een van die
winnaars die binnenkort door ons wordt uitgenodigd om gratis een Trinta
theaterconcert bij te wonen.

Dus, hou je mail in de gaten èn check in de tussentijd onze agenda als je echt niet kan wachten en sowieso verzekerd wilt zijn van een kaartje voor Sensuàl in de theaters.
Met opgeheven hoofd en een portie 'tique-tim' groeten wij jullie!

Um abraço,


Hopefully you all had an excellent vacation.
We have and are looking forward in seeing you again at our concerts.
From September we will start playing at the theaters again but you will also be able to see us play at some festivals in August and September. Be sure to check our agenda for dates. In the meanwhile we are still keeping our fingers crossed for an Edison. Thanks so much for all your votes! On September the 1st we will hear if Sensuàl made it to the final top 3. If so, you'll be the first to know!
Till next time!
um abraço, Sensuàl...

Hi everybody...
Welcome to our first official blog!

Eventhough we’ve already reached the 11th day of this brand new year, Sensuàl wishes you all the best for 2011 ( I guess we’re still allowed to do so ). May all your dreams, desires and goals be fulfilled. One of our goals has already been fulfilled; we’ve released our third album ‘Trinta’ ( Which means ‘Thirty’, by the way ). Check out our ‘YouTube’ account to see video footage of the recordings and everything that happened behind the scenes ( like eating spaghetti ice-cream, watching football and playing table-tennis ) during our stay in SUPOW studios in Cologne, last summer.

We started of 2011 with the ‘reprise’ of our ‘Brazilian Jazz ’n Grooves’ theatertour. In this tour, originally directed by Leoni Jansen, we tell the stories behind the songs and give you an inside in how we write our music. We had lots of fun setting up this tour and ofcourse we hope to see you at one of our concerts. Tourdates, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, photos, news and more can be found on our new website. Have a look around and feel free to leave a message on our board.

Até logo and a abraço,

Eva and the boys from Sensuàl


The music of the Dutch rooted band Sensuàl contains a catchy blend of jazz, pop and world music. A unique sound of Portuguese vocals mixed with strong grooves and pulsating rhythms. Their energetic concerts make Sensuàl to be an amazing live band. Not only the jazz lovers but also the younger pop audience embrace Sensuàl.

Eva Kieboom (vocals) and her neighbour Emiel van Rijthoven (keys) founded Sensuàl in 2002. The band debuted in 2004 with the cd ‘Acústico’. This cd contained songs played from the traditional Brazilian point of music, with a little touch of Sensuàl. ‘Acústico’ was the opportunity for Sensuàl to introduce its own compositions to a broad audience, which was just a tip of the iceberg of what was yet to come. Their cover of Janis Ians ‘Fly too high’ received a lot of airplay.

Due to the success of ‘Acústico’ the band played many festivals (a.o. North Sea Jazz). In 2006/2007 Sensuàl played a theatre tour through Holland with jazz singer Wouter Hamel. In 2008 the second album ‘Salve’ was released. All the songs on this album (apart from one) have been composed by Sensuàl. Some amazing guest-musicians contributed; a.o. guitarist Anton Goudsmit and trumpet-player Eric Vloeimans.

‘Salve’ has been crowned with a prestigious Edison Award in 2008. In the same year Sensuàl played their ‘Salve’ tour across the theatres of Holland. Furthermore they crossed the borders of their home country to tour through Indonesia where they played at the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta. In March 2009 Sensuàl supported Raul Midon at a sold-out Paradiso, Amsterdam. In 2009/2010 Sensuàl played a succesfull Brazilian Jazz ‘n Grooves’ theatre tour. In September 2010 they played as Dionne Warwicks support-act.

The band released their third album ‘Trinta’ on the 1st of November 2010 and played at the Dutch theaters and festivals ( a.o. North Sea Jazz ) in the Summer of 2011. The album ‘Trinta’ is the second Sensuàl album that has been nominated for an Edison Award. On November the 16th will be announced who won the Edison Public Award 2011.
