Tineke Postma, a highly acclaimed bandleader, composer, and saxophonist, is set to release
her eagerly awaited 8th album "Aria" in May 2023 via Edition Records. Aria reflects Tineke's
personal musical journey since the release of her "Freya" album in February 2020. The album
features new compositions, including pieces inspired by the Bimhuis Composition
Assignment 2021 she worked on during the COVID-19 pandemic. The title "Aria" represents
Tineke's passion for incorporating breath and space in her music, which is more important
than ever in today's world. It also signifies melody, a musical form central to opera, a genre
Tineke holds dear and is influenced by, particularly the singing of Maria Callas.
