Azra’s singing reflects the lyrical melancholy of Sevdah and Balkan folk with sultry elements of Gypsy Jazz and Andalucian Flamenco. Her performances illuminate an inner world forever marked by the war in her homeland, and her immigrant life in the United States.
Raised in Bosnia, on Tom Waits, Django Reinhardt, U2, Broadway musicals, opera and classical music – the young Azra successfully mixed those genres with the traditional musical form of the Balkans. A dramatic mezzo-soprano, with unique ornamentation and expressive singing style, Azra is a captivating stage performer.
