Barbara grabar 

Vocalist, pedagogue and graduate of Slovene studies. After eight years of studying classical singing with prof. Davor Mikulič and prof. Marcos Bajuk, her heart and career path took her to the world of jazz and popular music, where she studied jazz singing in Ljubljana, at the Conservatory of Music, under the mentorship of prof.

While also studying Slovenian studies, her musical career was marked by many musical collaborations with artists of different genres (Vlado Kreslin, New York Voices, Jadranka Juras, Trkaj, Martina Šraj, Katarina Mala, Maja Keuc).
