Vocalist, pianist, composer JARMILA XYMENA GORNA

Presented for nomination by the BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards

Press Release: "HASHGACHAH" on JarmilaMusic (2004) JXG74301

Jarmila Xymena Gorna's [Yarmeela Kseemena Goorna] 'Hashgachah' is a classic album of the new century. A bravura combination of musical brilliance and soulful expression, it heralds the arrival of a unique singing, composing and piano-playing talent.

Taking advantage of her four-octave range, the multi-layered and improvised voice is accopmanied by her fluid piano playing and subtle arrangements for double-bass, brass, percussion, oud and violin.

Born into a musical family in Lodz, Poland, London-based Gorna brings a wealth of musical experience to her work. She combines a thorough classical piano training with deep research into European folk traditions, and love of jazz, which she studied at the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice.

The result is music that is sophisticated and audacious; wordless songs that express more than lyrics can describe, delivered in a personal voice that takes the listener on a magical journey full of passion, soul searching and celebration.

Kindred Spirit, New age mag in UK

truly remarkable
"A truly remarkable album. She delivers a vast array of wordless vocal pyrotechnics; deeply sultry jazz to wild screeching chants and soaring celestial choirs. The virtuoso piano playing is of the highest calibre: richly diverse and brilliantly conceived."

The Herald, Scotland, UK

"Hashgachah" is nothing if not tour de force.
"Gorna clearly knows what she wants. With its jazzy sophistication, multi-cultural inspirations, incredible vocal harmonies and wordless songs which describe, as gorna puts it, 'the full seven colours of the emotional rainbow', her album 'Hashgachah' is nothing if not tour de force."

The Herald, Scotland, UK

Gorna choreographs epic soundtracks
"In Gorna's wordless songs, all the human emotions feature with drama and searing conviction. Seated at the grand piano with an electronic keyboard at hand to trigger her amazing harmonies, Gorna - with her emotional honesty and vulnerability - choreographs epic soundtracks."

Folker, Germany

incredibly captivating
"Hashgachah is an incredibly captivating album. Jarmila 'sits between chairs' not allowing the usual contexts of musical colours to emerge. What we have here is an album of a unique artist, who has built herself her own musical cosmos."

"It is Hard Culture as opposed to soft entertainment. For a moment, reality might seem to waver - giving a glimpse of another, purer, wilder world. It is what I call, "the universe banging on your heart".

This music is incredible - breaks through many boundaries and presents new sounds that are both challenging and well structured. The voice as "instrument, weapon, landscape ... " just fantastic. I can't wait to hear where Gorna takes this next
