Mia Žnidarič, vocals

Mia Žnidarič has always had a profound love for jazz singing. In the 1990s, when her voice was immortalised in the Slovenian classic film “Grandma Goes South” the singer took her rightful place as a first lady of Slovenian sung jazz. Her Slovenian-language renditions of jazz standards have become Slovenian evergreens.  She collaborates with the best Slovenian lyricists and authors and is frequently invited to join the topmost jazz ensembles, including Big Band RTV Slovenija and even The RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra.

At her concert in Metlika, she will showcase her biggest hits.
