Folkert is a pianist/composer from The Netherlands. He grew up in Tjerkwerd - which is a small village in the northern province of Friesland - where he learned to play the electronic organ. Later on he embraced the piano as his main instrument.

Folkert Hofstra's music is inspired by artists such as Talk Talk, Boards of Canada and Dire Straits and is reminiscent of the music of Nils Frahm and Joep Beving. His latest release is De Klim, a piece inspired by the book 'Into Thin Air' by Jon Krakauer.

'De Klim' has already been streamed more than 25.000 times on Spotify, for which I'm very happy!
