Levi Silvanie | PRESS KIT
artist + creative entrepreneur
Levi Silvanie (1987) is a Curaçaoan independent artist and creative entrepreneur. After having to remodel his life and career due to a car accident, Levi turned to songwriting and storytelling as sources of self-development and motivation. “My work is inspired by the passion for helping individuals and brands become better versions of themselves; music and storytelling are my tools.” Currently, he promotes his first book(children's book) cowritten by close friend Rosabelle Illes, an artist, writer and performer from the island of Aruba. The story is about Hearty__ a passionate and energetic heart that one day decides that he wants to be something other than simply a heart. He makes a journey around the body to see what it’s like to be an eye, smell what it’s like to be a nose, feel what it’s like to be a hand or a foot, taste what it’s like to be a mouth, and hear what it’s like to be an ear. During his adventure Hearty learns a lot, but the most profound lesson comes when he realizes the importance of a small heart in a big world. The message of his hit song “Djis mi mes” (“Simply me,” 2010) forms the backbone of this book. The multi-lingual story debuted in Aruba on September 29th, World Heart Day and is expected to be launch everywhere early 2019.
OPEN HOUSE CONCERT
Levi’s goal is to hosts 999 Open House Concerts all over the world, where he transforms homes into intimate music spaces.

Levi first came to prominence after releasing his first single “Bek”, in 2010.

Levi’s music is a mixture of different styles. Think folk, pop and singer-songwriter. Throw in his Caribbean background to add that worldly sound to the mix, and you get a unique blend of musical styles — that is one of a kind. He sings in both English and Papiamentu, and with his music he displays various cultural backgrounds that result into catchy tracks. His songs are drenched with positive vibes, and his soothing playful rhythmic vocal skills and afro-latin grooves; captivates you, leaving you in a ‘feel good’ state and sometimes, wanting to dance. They call him — “the singer-songwriter of sunshine soul.”

Curaçao North Sea Jazz festival
featuring Levi Silvanie by Marek Dębicki
On September 2nd and 3rd, Curaçao will be transformed into a music lover’s true paradise. The cream of the musical crop will perform live on stage on the 2011 edition of Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival. Among them is Curaçao’s own star Levi Silvanie.
Last year was the kickoff of the North Sea Jazz Festival on Curaçao. The event originated from a Dutch festival, held first in The Hague in 1976. In that year, jazz legends such as Sarah Vaughan, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz appeared on stage before more than nine thousand visitors. Today, around 65,000 to 70,000 music lovers from all over the world visit the Dutch festival. The contemporary editions of North Sea Jazz have a more poppy feel to them, making the festival more accessible to the mainstream audience. At the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival, jazz meets Caribbean. Last year proved to be a great success at doing so. Musical heavyweights like Simply Red, Raul Midón, Natalie Cole, Grupo Fantasma, Mulato as well as Randal Corsen & Roy Hargrove & El Negro and, last but not least, Lionel Richie, turned the beginning of September into a two day musical spectacle the likes of which Curaçao had never seen before.
This year, the Curaçao North Sea Jazz Festival will not be inferior to last year’s edition. The lineup includes world famous icons like Sting, Stevie Wonder, and Earth Wind & Fire. Next to these world-famous musical geniuses, Caribbean superstars like Juan Luis Guerra and Curaçao’s own Levi Silvanie will make their appearance. Levi will perform on the first day of the event, where he will experience his first night ever on stage at the North Sea Jazz Festival.
