Vocalist, songwriter, improviser, a passionate visionary. Anna Maria Jopek’s style is a fusion of improvisation, Polish traditional sounds, and European classical music.

She was only three years old when she recorded a song for the Polish Radio. At the age of seven, she began her musical education in piano class, and at the age of twelve, she performed at the Warsaw Philharmonic. Graduate of Fryderyk Chopin University of Music in Warsaw and student of philosophy at the Warsaw University.

For years, Jopek has been writing music and adopting classical and traditional themes to exceptional, multifaceted projects that bring together the world’s most outstanding musicians such as Pat Metheny, Branford Marsalis, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Richard Bona, Oscar Castro-Neves, Makoto Ozone, Noa, Mino Cinelu and others. She also had the pleasure to sing with: Sting, Youssou N’Dour, Bobby McFerrin, Ivan Linz, Nigel Kennedy and Dianne Reeves.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
