Pianist Carmen MAN founded the band CarmaMuse in 2012. At first it was a personal project consisting of just piano and vocals. Now the music is characterized by the powerful yet fragile voice of singer Vanessa ALMEIDA, the virtuoso violin and piano playing of respectively David VAN RANSBEEK and Carmen, and all this surrounded by experimental electronic soundscapes. The sound is modern, harmonized with jazz chords and influenced by soul, pop, folk and classical music. CarmaMuse brings you songs that tell a story that can easily be used as film scores. The repertoire of the band consists mainly of original compositions complemented with cover songs that have been given a whole new interpretation and unique CarmaMuse twist. In addition to various performances in cultural centra, popular music bars and local festivals, CarmaMuse has performed live at the festival “Suikerrock” in 2017 and on television on “Wakker op Zondag” on ATV in 2012. In 2020, the band was selected for the AU! -Project of VI.BE. In 2021 and 2022, the band brought a live spectacle, called “Project The Right Skin”, in multidisciplinary collaboration with other artists, based on its own songs interwoven with dance and acrobatics, and visuals.
