Jarmila was very nearly born on stage in the Lodz Grand Opera House where her Opera-singer mother was determined to go on with the show. Could it be this prenatal experience of being surrounded by multi-layered choir harmonies became the essence of Jarmila’s musical creativity?
She started composing at 5, with a first attempt at sound engineering at 12, she had a teenage flirtation with Beethoven’s sonatas and Bach’s fugues. Jarmila has never stopped reinventing herself, first in Poland with 19thcentury English Folk music with Sovay then a keyboard player with Rock bands.
When Jarmila reached England, with a quest to ‘find her own voice’ her multimedia Trance-Magic Piano Sessions at the bohemian Trolley Stop in Dalston, London, resulted in the acclaimed album ‘Hashgachah’. Jarmila was then chosen for nomination by the BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards, and has been a guest lecturer at Cambridge University and also a composer of music for theatre and film.
After many performances at the ICA, Jazz Café, Vortex, Union Chapel and many European music festivals she has also been featured and interviewed by many stations in radio and TV around Europe. Not stopping there Jarmila was also the inventor of a unique music teaching system, the Gorna Method and has built her own recording studio, where she works as a composer, songwriter, sound engineer, producer and arranger of music.
