    After studying piano at the Academy of Music in Ljubljana Mirna Bogdanović pursued studies in jazz vocals, first in Klagenfurt and then in Germany, graduating from Jazz Institute Berlin under Judy Niemack, Kurt Rosenwinkel and Greg Cohen. Noted for his work with J. Zorn, O. Coleman and T. Waits, Cohen speaks highly of Mirna: “Her sultry tone, expressive phrasing and total musicality make her the choice of many musicians 'in the know'.” Bogdanović has released her debut album this year, a subtle interlacement of classical vocal techniques and contemporary methods, which won the Deutscher Jazzpreis – “Jazz made in Germany” – for Best Debut Album of the Year. If at last year’s festival its contours could only be admired digitally, at a concert streamed from Berlin, this time Confrontation will be played live by an excellent line-up of Berlin-based musicians.
