Saskia 's Solo Act
Performing with special effects devices around her waist which she operates with one hand whilst playing the trumpet with the other, Saskia walks around, wireless amplified, and adds an extra dimension to contemporary house, techno, funk, electronica, R&B, hip-hop, reggae, downtempo and drum’n’bass.

"They’re riding on a heatwave." By Jim Santella, in Jazz Improv magazine, USA oktober 2005.
"Saskia mixes styles of music and culture as if they had always meant to be together" By J. Lyon Layden, in Creative Loafing, GA, USA February 2001.
Saskia Laroo is one of those all too few artists who are not afraid to be called an entertainer. In her own words: "I like it when people have a good time and dance while I play. I don ’t want to play just for other [musicians]." Whether it 's her musical performance or just her stage presence, she always does it with style, striking the eye, the ear and the heart.
