How the adventure started…

After finishing the conservatory in Rotterdam and finishing her masters in music in Utrecht in 2012 (focussed on jazz and klezmer music) she started immediately touring with her band Balcony Players! Since then and for more than 6 years they toured trough more than 20 countries, performing and sharing music with the local musicians. Moniek felt so lucky to share her music with so many people around the world!

Besides traveling and touring with the Balcony Players, Moniek made many solo travels where she focussed on learning roots music and interacting with local musicians!

She also toured in Israel and Switzerland with Adaya and through the Middle East and the Balkans with Emergency Circus. They played for many children in refugee camps and hospitals.
