As a youngster, as a pupil and student, Martina listened to many popular bands singing in English: the Beatles, the Stones, Cream, Bob Dylan, Pete Seeger to name a few – and sang along. The songs and their lyrics stayed with her forever and, even now, often feature in her performances.
When she met an Englishman in Paris, she didn’t know that English was soon to become her main language. She has been living in London for 30 years. Most of her English song compositions are not only suitable for language learning, but also for community choirs. They were also enjoyed by children in special needs schools in England and the Channel Islands during Martina’s Music in Hospitals tours.
Just out: Martina’s new EP on Bandcamp: There is no PLANet B!
Sing for planet Earth! (and learn English!)
