Where modern jazz,
folklore, and poetry meet.
YENTL is a music project founded by vocalist and composer Yentl Verborgt. With the help of wonderful musicians Wout Gooris on piano, Jeroen Reggers on guitar, Jasper De Roeck on double bass, and Jesse Dockx on drums she brings original compositions and arrangements to life.
YENTL is all about creating a unique atmosphere. The band takes the listener on a musical journey through lyrical melodies, intimate stories, and improvisation. All set against a backdrop of groove and rhythms. During their performances, the band seamlessly blends delicate moments with edgier, more experimental sounds.
At the heart of the music lies a deep sense of reflection, dreams, and searching and finding. Yentl’s compositions draw inspiration from ECM albums by artists like Anders Jormin and Kenny Wheeler. You can also recognize strong influences from the music of Ambrose Akinmusire and Joni Mitchell.
