Caro Emerald- the Andrew Sisters meets Hip Hop

Caro Emerald is a Dutch pop and jazz singer. She has been identified with the electro swing scene in  Europe although her range is wider and her music has a more classic feel. She first appeared on the music scene with her sing "Back It Up" in 2009.

On her Facebook page, she describes her music  as "Lyrical tales of romance and deception over a blend of Samba, jazz, bossa nova, mambo and crackling vinyl. A mix of 1950's inspired ballroom jazz, cinematic tangoes, groovin' jazz tracks, infectious mambo's and banging beats."

Here is a link to her bio.

Here is a link to her video of "Back It Up"

Caro's entire catalog of music is meant to be danced and those who have come to our dances have heard many of these songs. Here is a list of some my favorites.

If you are a Spotify member. Here is a playlist of her music.
