I met Romana at a family friend’s wedding in November 2019. Romana was Saxophonist hired to play for the wedding.
Like most of the audience, I was blown away with her talent. Romana plays with such a passion and even though she was not singing, you could feel the emotions of the song in every note she played.
It wasn’t until the day after the wedding when Romana and I connected. I then learned she also plays the flute (Those that know me…I played the flute throughout Middle and High school). I also discovered how young she was! Again, my mind was blown as to how much she’s accomplished at such a young age.
Romana has reminded me of what it is like to follow your dreams, to use your talent to motivate and inspire others.

The sentence music is life, shows itself with this versatile performer named Romana. A magnificent saxophone player who was able to turn her passion into a career. Currently, she is working on her first EP, with a purpose and determination to touch people through her heartfelt melodies. It all started at the age of 6, when the flute caught her eye, while she was roaming around at her school’s musical exploration day. Her teacher noticed her and immediately saw and heard her talent. It was only a year later that she joined the Orchestra at the age of 7! A humble shy Romana was captured by this moment and new experience. At the mere age of 11, she joined a percussion group, while also teaching herself to play the piano. She explored the sounds from South America and Africa. In this time, she dabbled with the sounds from; Suriname, Aruba, Curaçao and other parts of the Caribbean. These sounds represented her own beautiful mix (Surinamese, Indonesian, Chinese and Portuguese) and made the journey not only about music but about self-discovery as well.
On her 15th birthday she was gifted a saxophone and learned how to play in within 2 months. She was then accepted to music school. For her final showcase, she decided to take matters into her own hands and took on a full production by herself. From booking the venue, to arranging her tribute to her music journey, on stage.
Romana has been touring since 2016 and her desire is to travel the world and play as often as she can. She has performed all over the Netherlands as well as the United States, Germany, France, Aruba, Curaçao, Austria, Bonaire and Suriname. Telling her story emotionally through the notes of her saxophone, with unique and limitless talent, is Romana. The biggest compliment that she has gotten from her audience, is that she has a sound of her own and they can hear every word she sings through her saxophone. She is focused and determined to make her mark in the music industry. Next to being an incredible performing artist, Romana also composes music for other artists as well. This is only the beginning for Romana, so be ready to hear her debut EP releasing in October 2020.
