Aleksandra in the press:
It’s difficult to find a category for the Macedonian-Dutch mezzo soprano, composer, voice teacher and choir director, Aleksandra Popovska, as with each of her projects she enters new artistic territories. Macedonian and Balkan vocal traditions, avant garde and contemporary, experimental, – Aleksandra plays with the most different genres and embraces them through her personal style of interpretation. She uses her voice as an instrument and her interests in music are various. She presents her songs as mini dramas full of grace and explosive passion, accompanied by body language & gestures. The range of her voice oscillates between all colours and intensities, jubilating and whispering in fascinating poignancy. On her sets, she play piano, dulcimer, zither, little percussions, or ipad.
