SLOVENIA – Ana Soklič presents a cappella version of Amen which is the first single from her upcoming EP “Born to the Fight”, featuring the renowned Slovene vocal group Perpetuum Jazzile.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Ana Soklič started her music career early; as a young person, she studied with Alenka Dernač Bunta, a solo opera teacher, the acclaimed Slovenian musician Darja Švajger (two-time Slovenian representative at the Eurovision Song Contest) and singing coach Nataša Nahtigal.
In 2018, Ana undertook further vocal training with Dileesa Archer (a professional in the soul, gospel, R&B) in the United States. At 18, she set foot on her path as a songwriter as well. As a songwriter, she wants to take people to an unexpected place. For Ana, music is a way of life.
Ana competed twice at EMA, the Slovenian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, and 3 times at the Slovenian Song Festival, where, in 2019, she won 2 jury awards for best interpretation and the best song overall.
She often performs her songs with symphony orchestras at festivals and on television, including the RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra and often sings with smaller ensembles, as well. These are her favourite concerts because she feels the connection with the audience is at its most genuine and intimate.
