Over 25 years of experience performing, recording and coaching worldwide, from China to New York, from Rome to Prague, from Athens to Amsterdam.

Ilse is crazy about cycling through Amsterdam on her seasoned bike, she loves taking photos, and she has just recovered from a lifetime addiction to drop. (No, not drugs; liquorice, usually taken from the plant Glycyrrhiza glabra - but you knew that, of course).
