Fuensanta Méndez

Poetic Jazz with Latin-American roots

EP coming up soon!

Fuensanta is a vocalist, contrabassist and composer born in Mexico, currently living in the Netherlands. A love for poetry manifests within her songs: sometimes refined and colorful, sometimes avant-garde and raw. Music that has the freedom, richness and colours of contemporary jazz, but preserves the simplicity of a popular song.

She has performed in numerous settings (from soloist of a symphonic orchestra, big band, small ensembles, to solo) and venues throughout Mexico and Europe (North Sea Jazz/Bimhuis/Paradiso) with her band. In 2016 she won the 1st place, Press Prize, North Sea Prize and HVC when singing her compositions during the renowned Princess Christina Jazz Concours.
