Anka Koziel is a versatile vocalist and educator based in the Netherlands. In her singing she combines jazz improvisation, world music, extensive vocal techniques and any sound that she can produce with her voice to create interesting sound-scapes. She teaches jazz voice at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague (NL) and specialises Complete Vocal Technique (CVT) teacher.

Her main interest lies in writing her own compositions, rearranging and re-interpreting songs from all over the world, and looking for inspiration in everything that surrounds her. She treats her voice very instrumentally, and loves to explore all its possibilities and challenges.

Koziel has been performing since very young age, played various instruments in different bands (guitar, vibraphone, flute, piano and percussion instruments), but the thought of music as a career path became clear at the beginning of the adulthood.

Through her career, she collaborated with many great jazz musicians (Kenny Wheeler, Norma Winstone, Jesse van Ruller, Eric Vloeimans – to name a few), and took part in stylistically diverse projects from contemporary music, through gospel, blues, country-western, salsa (with Nueva Manteca), or fusion of world music and jazz (THEO - The Hague Ethospheric Orchestra).
