She has performed in Europe, Japan, Canada and across the United States and has released four albums.
Atlanta’s balkan band Mercury Orkestar will open the night. Mercury Orkestar fuses Pop rhythm, Balkan melody, and Jazz improvisation in lively performances that are a shot of pure excitement. Their spitfire trumpets, wailing clarinets and booming tubas will get any party started.
