Nina Mya is an award-winning Finnish jazz singer, composer, voice teacher and also the artistic director of Korpo Sea Jazz 2023. The dark-sounding singer with a unique voice and a strong interpretation has performed with many International and Finnish jazz stars, for example Frank McComb, Jukkis Uotila, Tim Hagans and UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra. At an age of 23 she was awarded with the title on Artist of the Year 2012 at Pori Jazz Festival. In Spring 2023 she will publish the album ”Searching My Soul” with UMO.
In the Korpo Sea Jazz main concert we will hear songs from the album published in 2021, ”Just Another Lonely Soul”, and also some brand new compositions. The lyrics, often about loneliness, relationships and lack of faith combined with amazing groove, improvisation and great connection between musicians make it the best kind of jazz! The compositions that are influenced by 70s soul, soul jazz and funk are mostly made by Nina, always remembering that the most important elements are strong melodies and touching lyrics.
At the concert in Korpoström, two orchestras will perform. The same ticket also applies to Varre Vartiainen Almost Standards Acoustic Live at 19.00. After the concert, a buffet will be served to those who have reserved a buffet ticket for the price of 23 €. Buy your tickets here!
