Anna van Riel

Anna is a high-energy children’s singer-songwriter who draws music and dance out of her young audiences – and has a lively new album on the way.

She describes her super power as remembering “just what it feels like to be little. I can put myself in the shoes of children, but I get to use my adult skills by making it happen in a really special way”.

Anna was just 17 when, accompanied by her dog, she made her first appearance at a children’s party.

Here she developed a flair for encouraging party-goers to have fun face-painting, singing and dancing.

Twenty years on and Anna is releasing her second children’s album.
