Arlette Hovinga is a jazz marketer and promoter from The Netherlands. With roots in production and stage management since the age of 15, she has toured the world in the meantime but is currently based in Rotterdam. Since indie production and stadium touring aren’t an option in the current climate, her focus shifted to PR and marketing. As a publicist for Jazzfuel Arlette helps artists promote their upcoming releases, while she also spent the larger part of this year promoting Festival Jazz International in Rotterdam and Nijmegen among others. Her main personal interests are learning languages (currently Russian), jazz, cooking, and collecting pre-war cookbooks, while also fascinated by and attempting to engage in other people’s learning processes. In 2021 she hopes to release her first book which is about communication, or lack thereof, between artists and promoters.
