The jazz singer Nina Mya and UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra will release their joint album Searching My Soul in March 2023. The album is part of the UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra’s Great Voices series, dedicated to stellar vocalists from Finland and abroad. The album release concert will be held at G Livelab in Helsinki on Monday 8.5.2023. Buy tickets here.

The Great Voices has featured numerous concerts since 2020, and this digital album is the first recording to be released in the series. Nina Mya’s rich and dark voice is very unique in the Nordic region and is perfectly suited to open the album series.

The album consists mainly of Nina Mya’s own compositions with new big band arrangements written by UMO’s chief conductor and artistic director Ed Partyka, who also conducted the album.
