Biography

Karsu Dönmez (Amsterdam, April 19, 1990) is a Dutch singer, pianist and composer, daughter to parents immigrated from Turkey. She was named after the village of Karsu in the Turkish province of Hatay from which her parents originated.

Although she does not like to be classified for her style, jazz is probably the best description for her music. She has been labeled the Dutch Norah Jones. Her music mostly consists of original compositions or rearrangements with lyrics in English or Turkish.

She started to play the piano at the age of 7. The story goes that her parents bought her a piano with money that they had put aside for buying a car. At 14, she started to perform at her parents’ restaurant (Kilim, Amsterdam). Greater success, including two invitations to perform at the Carnegie Hall in New York and several appearances on television, followed soon.

Her first CD “Live aan ‘t IJ” consisting of 8 songs that were registered live, was released in 2010. In October 2012, her first studio album “Confession” followed, which was received positively in the press. By 2012, she is regularly on tour performing both in the Netherlands and elsewhere around the world. Only at special occasions, she still can be found singing in her parents’ restaurant.
