award-winning jazz vocalist
Jekaterina is an award-winning young jazz vocalist born in Latvia and currently residing in London. A graduate from the department of jazz at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London, she studied voice and improvisation with Brigitte Beraha and Scott Stroman. Jekaterina’s love for crafted arrangements and sensitive interpretations of text successfully earned her an opportunity to do an exchange year at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris in France. This musical experience helped her to become a prize-winner in European vocal jazz competitions such as, Jazz Voices 2011 in Lithuania, and Voicingers 2012 in Poland.
Her appearances include performances at the Pori Jazz Festival in Finland, Rigas Ritmi festival in Latvia, jazz clubs in French Riviera, and various appearances across London: the Spice of Life in Soho, St. Martin-in-the-Field, Barbican free stage, Bridewell theatre and Southside house to name a few.
She will be performing alongside jazz guitarist Eduardas Armonas on the Free Stage at ten past one on Saturday 28th.
