With a name like Tanja Maritsa one might guess that the London based singer songwriter, has some exotic connections. Indeed they might be even more exotic than you first imagine....
Born to an English mother and Croatian father, Tanja spent the first five formidable years of her life living in Paris, France. It's no irony then that her first spoken words were spoken in the language of love - French! Her early years growing up in Paris were extremely vital to her development as an artist and as is evident from her new album 'Fragile', these images and sounds remain seared into her soul, and to this day are a vital part of her compositions.
