Maja came to the attention of the broader Slovenian audience in the show Slovenia Has Talent in 2010, as an aspiring young soul singer with a “black voice”. She released her first album entitled Po Viharju in collaboration with the band Papir, and followed it up one year later with her solo album Indigo. At the Eurovision Song Contest in Dusseldorf, Maja achieved the best Slovenian placement since the introduction of semi-final evenings. In 2016, she completed her studies of music in Rotterdam with distinction, and she currently lives and pursues a successful creative career in the Scandinavian capital of music, Stockholm, under the mentorship of Anders Bagge, who has penned hit songs for numerous celebrated performers (Britney Spears, Celine Dion, Jennifer Lopez, etc.). In spring 2017, Maja released her first international mini-album entitled Fairytales under the name Amaya. At the present concert, we will have an opportunity to hear songs from this album performed live. Maja’s band consists of Miha Koretič (guitar), Dorian Granda (drums) and Jernej Kržič (bass), all very well-known Slovenian musicians. Their repertoire covers a rich selection of Maja’s own songs as well as arrangements of pop/soul hits. Maja & Band promises an evening full to the brim with good energy and music for the soul.
