"Bliss Art Wins Over The Edinburgh Festival - August, 2011"

Aneesa Chaudhry and BLISS ART travelled to the mayhem of the Edinburgh Festival, managing to eke out a chance to show their long developed talents between the tectonic plates of the Fringe festival. Overcoming changes in times, equipment and rogue comedians stealing time, they still managed to WOW audiences with a taste of what they clearly wanted more of - seasoned Jazz musicians lulling and enchanting people away from the vibrant stress of modern life whilst avoiding tired cliché; this is the freshness which became the famous genre. Even the Slovenian Consul managed to make it being left hungry for more. 'We Want More' was the feeling they left us all with - Budge up Edinburgh Festival let in the talent! - Alex Dudden, Ragged University, Edinburgh Festival

"Bliss Art perform at Oxford Jazz Festival - April 2010"

Tucked away in the Summertown wine cafe, a packed house devoured every note delivered by Aneesa Chaudhry as part of the Oxford Jazz Festival 2010. A stunning fusion of styles, with her light vocals floating over the top, she kept the crowd enchanted with her warm dialogue, as they supped their wines. A boon to the line-up of this new festival. - Max Mason, Organiser

"Bliss Art perform at Ginglik, London - November 2010"

Aneesa brings a great vibe (and a crowd) to her gigs. She has an original take on performing and brings a little old school glamour to her live shows. Prepare to be entertained as she seamlessly navigates through classics and new material. An excellent addition to any serious music event billing. - Sam Sutton

"Bliss Art perform at Leith on the Fringe, Edinburgh - August 2011"

BLISS ART - a wholly appropriate name for a three-person band that is surely unique in that it combines Slovene, English and Pakistani origins in to an entertaining package that combines the classical with contemporary. We loved BLISS Art's performance at The Fringe in Leith, and heard that their other gigs went down well. Keep going BLISS ART! And those of you who haven't seen them - don't miss out when you get the chance! - Ana Wersun: Consul General of the Republic of Slovenia in Scotland

"Bliss Art perform at Leath on the Fringe, Edinburgh - August 2011"

BLISS ART from Brighton, rocked onto the stage at Live in Leith, after a unpredicted impromptu comedy sketch, bounding energetically onto the stage, with a theatrical piano intro from Mojca Monte, they blasted out a number of jazz classics, and a few original songs, which settled happily among the classics. Toes were a-tapping, hips a-swinging and smiles grew over every face. Bliss Art’s set was short but delightfully enjoyable and musically satisfying. The flying fingers of Jana C.Amali on flute and the tones of Aneesa Chaudhry resounded and were awesome. This collective is musically complimentary in skill and style. A fine tuned performance and something not to miss! - Kirsty at Leath on the Fringe

The journey of BLISS ART began IN 2010 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 now performed at such prestigious venues as the Saatchi Gallery, are in demand at festivals and play sell out shows in Slovenia, Greece, UK and Holland. The band members have charisma, diversity, not least, amazing musical talent! With audience participation (who find themselves tapping their toes to well-known tunes as well as original numbers, leaving them wanting more), percussion and singing, BLISS ART think of their shows as pushing the boundaries while simultaneously sharing a fun night out with friends.

Aneesa Chaudhry (Vocals) brings with her boundless energy & passion in her singing. As well as teaching singing and running voice workshops, she is well known entertainer within the UK Gay & Jazz scene, singing with Big Bands as well as performing more experimental, eclectic, soul-searching repertoire. Her performances take audiences on a journey of highs and lows, laughter and tears.

Jana Cadez Amali (Flute) & Mojca Monte (Piano), two of Slovenia’s most respected classical musicians arrived in the UK, with a depth of experience that only those who have lived through a war can understand. Their stories are evident in their playing and their hunger to share their emotions through the music is compelling.

Jana brings sounds you didn’t know flutes could make to the mix. Along with the Indian flute, she loves to share the beauty of the affair between flute and flute player to the audience. Her playing tells the stories of a hunger to move beyond the ordinary, bringing spice, risk, sensitivity and mysticism to the musical arrangements

Mojca plays with gusto, humour and precision. A formidable pianist, she is an exciting performer to watch as she jumps about flamboyantly on her piano stool while she plays. Keep alert or you’ll miss the joke!
