For the past 20 years, Jana Machalett, from Germany, has lived in the Netherlands. She has established herself there as well as abroad as a popular flautist, especially in the field of contemporary chamber music.
Jana is a member of Ensemble Lumaka, focused on flexible configurations of players and programs, and of Insomnio, a modern music ensemble whose debut cd was nominated for the “Deutsche Schallplattenkritik” prize.
Alongside working with Lumaka and Insomnio Jana is a regular guest flautist with other renowned groups such as Ensemble Modern and Asko|Schönberg.
She has also been invited to perform with the Doelen Ensemble, the Ives Ensemble, the Nieuw Ensemble and the New European Ensemble.
CD projects include recordings with Ensemble Lumaka, Insomnio, Asko|Schönberg and GRAM.

Next to making music I love swimming under the open sky, reading in the train, exploring new cities, playing tourist in my own town and writing old-fashioned letters.
