here are some of the concerts happening very soon in New York that I'm happy to be a part of:
November dates with Klazz-ma-tazz at Tagine TBA
New bi-weekly performances by Asaran Earth Trio - many people have asked me when will we be singing in NY after our tour around Europe, so as we are finishing our debut recording, we will sing at Tagine every other Wednesday for the rest of our lives :)
Omaran was treated at a SAMS-supported hospital in eastern Aleppo City. SAMS is a non-profit, non-political medical relief organization that is working on the front line of crisis relief in Syria and neighboring countries to save lives and alleviate suffering. In 2015, SAMS treated more than 2.6 million Syrians.

I will leave you with some memories this time, after all it's the famous Facebook's Throw Back Thursday, so here is Mildred's video for Volim Te Budalo Mala, that I can't wait to play with Mildreds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPL80YbDKCc
I hope I will see you at one of those occasions, either here in NY or back in Croatia!
Renowned for her complex musical sensibility and supple sound, Croatian jazz vocalist Astrid Kuljanic has recently performed in Manhattan at Jazz Gallery, St. Peter’s Church and New York Live Arts.
Whether interpreting American Songbook classics, jazz or Brazilian standards or delivering her original music or re-imagined folk songs with live electronics, Ms. Kuljanic envelopes audiences into her music.
In Eastern Europe she has performed at Lisinski Concert Hall Zagreb, Croatian House of Culture Rijeka, Stara Elektrarna, Ljubljana, and at the Maribor, Lent, and Europafest, Bucharest festivals. With her quintet ‘Mildreds’ she has released two albums for the major Croatian label Aquarius Records, and is currently promoting her solo album “Manhattan Dream.”
Ms. Kuljanic is founder and director of the Crescendo Music Festival, Cres, Croatia, which she established to showcase established and emerging musicians and local artists.
Astrid holds degrees from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, in chemical engineering, and from the Conservatory G. Tartini, Trieste, Italy, where she was a scholarship music student. There she began exploring electronic music with Klaus Gesing, and has since gone on to study with Theo Bleckmann and Gretchen Parlato at Manhattan School of Music.
