Alice Mary Jelaska is a popular clarinettist, vocalist, band leader and composer in London’s gypsy jazz, folk and world scenes. Her virtuosic clarinet playing has a deep, feisty and Balkan edge reflecting her Croatian roots and gypsy influences – and her vocals, described as ‘serene’, ‘pure’ and ‘water-like’, add a delicate contrast to her performances.
She owes her ethereal and nostalgic influences to her background in vintage and folk music, having led gypsy swing band The Kings Cross Hot Club for over 5 years, as well as leading and being invited to work with several world and contemporary folk projects. She has collaborated with musicians from all over, from Turkey to Congo, Senegal to Argentina, Scotland to India – performing at prestigious UK events and venues including Secret Garden Party, Southbank Centre, Royal Albert Hall, Victoria & Albert Museum, Hyde Park, Kensington Palace Orangerie; and abroad in France, Italy Switzerland, Turkey, Germany, Los Angeles. As a recording artist she has also worked as a session musician for BBC Television.

1st – Elisa Caleb
8th – Jane Parker
Born in Milan, Italy, Eleonora’s interest in music began in her early teenage years, when she started studying drums and percussions. While touring and recording behind the drum kit in various rock, pop and jazz bands, she developed an interest in singing, as she supported her groups on backing vocals. Having moved to the UK in search of new inspiration, she started studying jazz singing, while performing on the London scene and writing her own material. Her first album as a singer-songwriter, titled Stars, was released in late 2015, gaining supportive reviews and airplay across many UK outlets. Her set features her highly regarded originals, and percussion-focused arrangements of an eclectic mix of her favorite songs by artists as diverse as Sting, Dvořák and Cyndi Lauper.
Rebecca Tommasi can’t remember a time when she wasn’t singing, but she found her True voice around four years ago in 2014 – a naturally warm voice, a voice made for jazz.
She cut her teeth at the Imperial Hotel in London’s Holborn, regularly singing to varied audiences. There she met some incredible musicians, as well as some of her most loyal fans. She has since sung at various locations across the capital, most recently at Pizza Express and the Battersea Barge, and is routinely supported by some of the finest jazz musicians around.
Her stage presence is as warm and compelling as her voice, and with an ever growing and more daring repertoire, her live performances are a must.
Influences include Anita O’day, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Ernestine Anderson, Amy Winehouse, Chet Baker and Bill Evans to name just a few.
