Bogna Kicinska - jazz vocalist, composer and educator, originally from Poland. Before coming to the US she was already recognized in Poland as one of the most prolific singers on the modern jazz scene. At that time she won many competitions, e.g. Old Jazz Meeting in Ilawa, International Jazz Competition for Singing Musicians in Zory, Nadzieje Warszawy in Warsaw.   In 2010 she moved to New York to study at the Aaron Copland School of Music CUNY. Living in NYC Bogna stays very active on the music scene performing with a variety of bands and projects. In 2012 she started her own quintet which features some of the finest musicians on the New York jazz scene. In 2014 she released her first album “The Maze” which has been nominated for the FRYDERYK 2015 award, the Polish equivalent of a Grammy.
