Saturday September 24

Serghio Jansen is a world-class musician, music educator, composer, and graduate of the Berklee College of Music.

After graduating Serghio moved to New York City where he played at the legendary Blue Note Jazz Club, performed with multiple artists, and toured in the US. According to Bass Musician online magazine, “Serghio Jansen masters the art of epic guitar solos.”

Serghio is a virtuoso guitarist. His solos are electrifying and totally unpredictable, going into directions you do not expect while adding color and deep emotional turns. His guitar playing reflects a high technical mastery of his instrument. Not wanting to be boxed into genres of music, he considers all genres as his playground.

Serghio’s goal is to give Aruba more international recognition in the music scene. At his young age, he has already recorded on over 10 international CDs. On the Elan Trotman CD, he recorded with Luis Conte, Terrylyn Carrington, Luis Conte, Alex Al and Ricky Lawson, drummer and bass player of Michael jackson. In addition, he has played with multiple Grammy award winning artists such as Oscar Stagnaro, Mark Walker, Alex Brown, Angelique Kidjo, Jorge Drexler, with Chucho Valdez in Boston at the Agganis Arena, and at many festivals such as the Rochester Jazz Festival (New York), Caribbean Sea Jazz Festival (Aruba), the London Jazz Festival, and jazz festivals in Taiwan and Venezuela.
