The Dutch jazz institution brings a fresh and funky injection of sax-appeal


Propelled to global stardom in the early 1990s with her break out debut album Saxuality, jazz and funk saxophonist Candy Dulfer has made an indelible mark in a male dominated genre. Influenced by giants like Sonny Rollins, Coleman Hawkins, and Dexter Gordon, she fuses experimental tempos and moods from deep funk jams to slower, more sensitive ballads.

A former child prodigy, Dulfer first performed with her respected tenor saxophonist father, Hans Dulfer, making her first recording at 11 and starting her band “Funky Stuff” at 14. She has since supported Madonna, made multiple appearances with R&B legend Prince and collaborated with Van Morrison and Eurythmics guitarist Dave Stewart.

Now touring Europe and Asia, Dulfer’s electrifying presence and powerful solos remain a funky force.
