He is also very active in modern Dutch music as both a composer and performer, and regularly tours around the world with many different groups. He has composed music for film and television and is in great demand as an arranger. Winanda van Vliet is a Dutch singer of great versatility with a command of many different music styles, ranging from music theatre to modern music, from jazz to pop, chanson to soul.
