07-04-’16 The new cd of Izaline Calister is called Rayo Di Lus (Ray of Light). It features two surprising acts, the Curaçao/Dutch cooperation ‘Kuenta I Tambú’ (KiT) and the Aruban group ‘Buleria’.

Izaline’s eighth(!) contains ten new songs and a beautiful adaptation of the Dutch song ‘Telkens Weer’. If not before, this cd settles her name as a singer/songwriter.

Cd-presentation-shows are scheduled for April and June, in Den Haag, Amsterdam and Rotterdam.
