American-Croatian jazz, blues and soul singer and composer Thana Alexa and her famous soon to be husband Antonio Sanchez, are to perform at Park Orsula in Dubrovnik on 29 July as part of the 66th Dubrovnik Summer Festival…

Born in New York City, Alexa was raised in Croatia and then moved back to the States where she has built up an impressive career. She has performed at many festivals, including Red Sea Jazz Festival and Montreal Jazz Festival – with legendary drummer Bernard “Pretty” Purdie. Thana came 2nd in the 2014 Made in New York Jazz Competition and won the 2011 Jazzon Alpe-Andria International Competition. For the last two years she’s been in residency at Greenwich Village’s 55 Bar.

On her new album, which she will present at her concert next week in Dubrovnik, Thana worked with some of the biggest names in the jazz world today such as Jorge Roeder, Sergio Salvatore, Donny McCaslin and Christos Rafalides.

The concert will have special meaning for the American-Croatian, as Dubrovnik was the first place she ever performed in public.
