You can never ignore her warm and enchanting voice. An eclectic genius, she has never had a traditional music education, but has been relying on her own strength. Today, Croatia Ines is considered one of the greatest jazz singers. She is much more than just a talented singer and songwriter, she swims in many different artistic styles like cabaret, comedy, jazz and theater and other artistic disciplines.

Some call her Croatian Bjork, Ines is a born singer and a band leader. You can feel her strong instinct and musicality in the first minutes of her show. When you hear her once you immediately notice her unique voice.
