The journey of Bliss Art began on a sunny Greek Island where 2 talented Slovenians, Mojca (a superb pianist) & Jana (a fantastic flute player) crossed paths with a singer (Aneesa) and her Rock (Nadine). So began a creative journey of musical exploration, improvisation, tasty biscuits & a beautiful friendship! From Greece to Manchester & London to Slovenia the Trio have started an incredible heart filled journey with a lot of laughter, creativity and exploration of musical ideas. They have already been invited to play in Greece and Slovenia again this year and look forward to a music filled year of gigs & great food!
BLISS ART have quite a following on the festival circuit both at home and abroad. Their gigs offer easy to listen to yet challenging songs filled with Eastern European sounds from virtuoso pianist Mojca Monti and formidable flautist Jana Cadez Amali plus the usual spicy cheekiness and soaring vocals from Asian songstress Aneesa Chaudhry. Their gigs are full of humour, talent, light zen moments and intense darkness if you allow yourself to take the ride.
BLISS ART's original songs are catchy and easy to listen to. The three songwriters love taking themes that take their fans on a whirlwind of emotions, not holding back from the highs and lows in the stories the songs tell. Mojca's amazing ability to create different sound textures and an enchanting atmosphere with her fingers and body movements is in itself a creation of a master piece. Her talent shines through with every note that she brings to life and it captures your heart. Her self penned song 'On The Edge' is bitter sweet with a conversation about life and death with a GP and her song 'Gypsy Woman' is dedicated with a wink in her eye 'To All The Women In My Life'. Her piano playing is flawless, powerful and leaves its imprints with you. She is a virtuoso in her own right.
Jana Cadez Amali's love for the flute simply dances from her fingers and breathe as she makes the most enticing sounds from it. She also plays the bansuri in the band's much loved cover song 'Tera Chera'. When the band play this song, the room stops breathing, afraid to miss even a second of the moment they are in. She bends the notes bringing fully to life the indian instrument. Her original songs are compelling and deep. The rhythms and melodies in 'You', Hold On' and 'Tango Crush' carry the lyrics like a bird on a flight with every ounce of it's heart.
Aneesa Chaudhry is a vocalist and cheeky performer with a rare quality that is worth coming out to listen to. She brushes off her ability to swoop from the ethereal high to a low timbre of low that few women can reach. Her original songs 'Guappa Chica', 'Sappho's Bossom' and 'Letting Go' are fun and full of vocal improvisation and vocal percussion.
BLISS ART's Eastern flavours includes both the Asian element and the Eastern European element, gyspy sounds, 'melos' as described by the Slovenian members. They perform songs in Slovenian which Chaudhry loves trying to get her tongue around. She is always ready for a proper vocal work out to get her lips and tongue moving around the vowel-less words! 'Crazy fun!' she says.
The band have produced several albums, 'On The Edge' and 'Hold On' and they regularly perform favourites for their fans as well as bringing new inticing material to their gigs!
