Saturday 8 July – JANA VARGA 


jana varga

Jana Varga is a UK based, classically trained singer songwriter and multi instrumentalist. Her gospel influenced debut album ‘Foreigner Face’ was released in 2022 shortly before her UK tour supported by Help Musicians UK grant. The album was reviewed ‘The stuff Carnegie Hall shows are made of’ by FATEA magazine and rated ‘one of the classiest records I’ve heard all year‘ by Paul Sexton (BBC, Billboard). Jana’s musicianship is founded in the years of studying classical music and fused with her love of roots, gospel and jazz.

Jana was born in Slovakia and comes from a family of musicians – she studied flute and piano in Slovakia, Austria and France. She was a flautist in a prog rock band ‘Persona Grata’ selected to perform at ‘Progressive Nation At Sea’ 2014 festival in Miami, USA organised by Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater. Later that year, she was to become a flautist in Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra in Czechia when she decided to pursue the career of a singer songwriter and moved to London.
Besides classical music, Jana cites folk influences such as Janis Ian and James Taylor, jazz and fusion. Her sense of harmony and melody comes from building on tradition while constantly looking for surprise and disrupting musical expectations. Having to ‘settle’ down in several countries throughout her life, her lyrics often reflect struggles and challenges when starting from zero in a new environment.
Amazingly beautiful’ – Janis Ian
‘A really classy sound, a fascinating mixture of styles and really original, as are the lyrics.’ – Paul Sexton (BBC, The Billboard)
‘The likes of Karen Carpenter, Clannad’s Moya Brennan, Enya, Sally Barker and perhaps Vonda Shepherd all spring to mind, on hearing this gorgeous vocal talent. She’s right up there with those stars in quality, too.’ – Music Republic
