Aleksandra Denda is an internationally recognized, Zurich-based vocalist, songwriter, educator and music therapist (MMT) who's been featured on Grammy, Emmy and Latin Grammy albums and projects.
As much at home in Jazz and Neo Soul, as in traditional Balkan singing among other World Music genres, her work explores the middle ground between cultures and genres, between personal and collective identities, while honoring ancestral traditions.
Upon graduating summa cum laude from Berklee College of Music in Boston (USA), Aleksandra has performed at numerous prestigious concert halls across the US – Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, Museum of the Modern Art, United Nations Headquarters, collaborating and sharing the bills with the likes of Snarky Puppy, Rachelle Ferrell, Antonio Sanchez, Patrice Rushen, Bilal, Thana Alexa, Jose Merce and American Idol's Michael Lynche.
She is a co-founder of ROSA – an all-female a cappella group whose mission is to preserve and nurture the dwindling folk art of traditional Serbian singing within an international community of women spanning 4 continents.
Her multifaceted commitment to music extends to education, where she has crafted and led programs and workshops across the globe, collaborating with MoMA Educational Centre, Circle World Arts and Global Music Institute, covering topics from Cultural Diversity, Serbian Singing Heritage, Songwriting and Improvisation.
