KAFKA is the two-headed band of Dafne Holtland and Frank van Kasteren, an amalgamation of musical contrasts.

Bring those two worlds together and you get KAFKA. The musical walking hand-in-hand of two people who have exactly what the other does not. How does that sound? Cheerful and thoughtful. Sometimes bombastic melodic, at other times layered, soft and modest. Kafkaësk exciting, followed by the harmonic conclusions you hope for. With a languid raw undertone – rhythmic, burrowing and uplifting.. More »

She: a sky-blue voice. As ‘up’ as it gets. Light, lyrical, rounded, and harmonic, yet brazen as rock ‘n’ roll. Hand her an instrument and she’ll play, fingers flying with equal parts childlike innocence and formal training. That’s what happens when you learn to play classical music, are drawn into light (pop) music, and bring in the technique, ‘zhuzh’, and art of improvisation from the world of theater.

And what about him? Frank van Kasteren. Alternative songwriter.

A workhorse on any instrument, unpolished but skilled, and with a composer’s perfectionism. Seeks the surprise of musical contrasts, adds raw beats, and tinkers until it sounds as it should. An experienced songwriter, guitar player for various bands, and creator of beautiful LP’s.
