Jelena’s music will draw you in with its warmth, quirkiness, and honesty. You’ll hear echoes of Serbia, where she was born, and of Canada, where she grew up. You’ll hear hints of folk, jazz, and pop, brought down to earth. Ultimately, you’ll hear a story; stirring, heart-breaking, and laugh-out-loud funny. Jelena will be joined by special guests Karl James Pestka on viola/violin and Margrét Arnardóttir on accordion. The trio will play music from Jelena’s upcoming album to be released in fall 2020.
