Manca Udovič, the internationally acclaimed pianist from Ljubljana, who charmed us along with Croatian diva Nina Kraljić in January last year, will present the new chapter of her “romance” at her return to Šiška with her backing band – her full-length debut of original songs, Počasi in previdno, which will be released just a few days before the concert.
The concerts of Romanca, a musical group led by foreign-trained Slovenian pianist Manca Udovič, resonate with both tranquil piano melodies and pop tunes, both jazz ballads and funky rhythms. In addition to Manca, they’re provided by established Slovenian musicians: singer Uroš Buh (Same babe, Gombač & Kradljivci časa, Josip Bras, Natriletno kolobarjenje s praho, …), bassist Jan Gregorka (Magnifico, Momento Cigano, Soul jazz & jaz, Janez Bončina Benč), trumpeter Rok Nemanič(Balkan Boys) and drummer Gašper Peršl(Vlado Kreslin in Mali bogovi, Severa Gjurin, Mia Žnidarič, Oto Pestner, Andrej Šifrer, Elevators).
The live presentation of the new album Počasi in previdno, which contains nine original realistic-romantic songs by Manca in a classical-jazz manner, will also feature appearances by the Emona strings quartet, a brass section with Matija Mlakar and Rudi Javornik, guitarist Gašper Kržmanc and more. The album was produced by Rok Lopatič, and the concert will be accompanied by a magical vide animation in collaboration with Blažka Jurjavčič. The debut album will be released on 4 October, then come to life in our Katedrala Hall ten days later.
