Mirna Bogdanović, vocals; Povel Widestrand, piano, synth, Rhodes; Peter Meyer, guitars; Tom Berkmann, bass; Philip Dornbusch, drums
Winner of the Deutcher Jazzpreiss for her debut album, Confrontation (2021), Mirna Bogdanović is making a return visit to Ljubljana, where she has previously participated in the Jazz Festival Ljubljana and performed with the Big Band RTV Slovenia. She released her second album, ‘Awake’, last spring.
Produced by celebrated London-based multi-instrumentalist/producer Chris Hyson (Snowpoet), it showcases a sound which is rich, varied and modern. Layers of vocal harmonies, synth textures, and effects are woven into the already-complex sound of her expanded ensemble of Berlin-based musicians. Among her many accomplishments, Mirna is the curator for the jazz club Donau 115, which was nominated for the Deutcher Jazzpreiss 2023 venue of the year. Meticulously composed and arranged, Mirna’s compositions bridge the gap between contemporary jazz and art-pop, providing nuanced complexity, energetic improvisation and exemplary musicianship within song-like structures.
At the age of two, Berlin-based vocalist Mirna Bogdanović had already experienced more hardship than most, forced to flee her native Sarajevo with her parents in the face of war. Now firmly established on the Berlin scene, she’s made a name for herself as one of today’s most talented singers and songwriters. Time is on her side.
.. Bogdanovic offers an astounding vocal range and technique, which is completely innovative and combined with her marvellous compositions offers a deeply moving sonic experience, which stands out high above the standard recorded output... - Adam Baruch
