The Netherlands: Jeangu Macrooy - “Grow”

The Netherlands: With Jeangu Macrooy in Rotterdam 16 May

 Jeangu Macrooy will represent his country at the competition in May in Rotterdam with “Grow”.

 Jeangu Macrooy was born in Suriname in 1993. Together with his twin brother, Xillan, they created a musical duo.

 Jeangu’s musical ambition turned out to be bigger than the music scene in his native Suriname, leading to his move to the Netherlands in 2014. There he met producer and composer Perquisite who signed him to his label, Unexpected Records. From that moment, Jeangu’s career in the Dutch music industry was on the fast track. He has since played several big Dutch festivals, is a recurring guest in TV shows and has been nominated twice for an Edison Award, the Dutch equivalent to the American Grammy Awards.
