Nina Šardi – JUNEsHELEN & Alja Petric: Soundscapes – Chantings & Arias
Saturday, 19 November , 2022, at 8 p.m.

You are invited to the concert of Nina Šardi – JUNEsHELEN and Alja Petric, which will happen on Saturday, 19 November, 2022, at 8 p.m. at KIBLA PORTAL, within the framework of the Music cycle TOMORROW.

The project Soundscapes – Chantings & Arias by the artist Nina Šardi (JUNEsHELEN) started in December 2017. It is based on the exploration of the intuitive world with a symbiosis of droning, orchestral melodies, harmony, and intuitive singing in an imaginary language. In collaboration with Alja Petric, the compositions merged with a subtle sound world through the frequencies of ancient acoustic instruments, which create meditative musical ambiences, and powerful author's voices, which take us on a journey to deep and distant inner worlds. They sing in a language that comes from a world where words have no meaning, only an intuitive and sincere feeling as we move freely in the freedom of self-expression. Some things can only be felt with the heart and understood with the soul.

Nina Šardi, born in Slovenia in 1985, is a unique and self-loyal loner and traveler in the world of music. Graduated in art history at the Karl-Franzens University in Graz, Austria, she is a Slovenian solo artist and musician, under the pseudonym JUNEHELEN: singer, creative songwriter, intuitive vocalist, author of music and lyrics, producer, and performer and designer of the overall image. Her artistic development was influenced by a wide range of genres and styles, such as experimental and electronic music, trip hop, classical, ambient, »progressive« and film music. In recent years, she has been working more intensively with the power of sound, frequency, melody and voice, exploring and creating new branches in her self-discovery, an unique intuitive world. »In a wonderful crazy world between chaos, dreams and reality, nothing defines us more than the moments in which we feel free,« is the creative starting point of the artist, musician JUNEsHELEN, who says that it is a combination of her »hedonistic, feminine spirit and creativity« with »piano melodies, soft synths and earthy drum beats« over which her vocals hover amid »poetry of romantic poetic affect«. Her debut album, Chapters Part One, which is about »balancing life and inserting experiences and subjective things into the world of music, sound and voice«, was released in 2015.

Alja Petric
, a singer born in Prekmurje, after graduating in architecture (2012), focused her life on researching the art of music, voice-sound frequencies and their impact on humans.

Since January 2018, she has been actively collaborating with the composer, singer and producer JUNEsHELEN in the Soundscapes – Songs & Arias project.
