Jarmila Xymena Gorna's [Yarmeela Kseemena Goorna] 'Hashgachah' is a classic album of the new century. A bravura combination of musical brilliance and soulful expression, it heralds the arrival of a unique singing, composing and piano-playing talent.

Taking advantage of her four-octave range, the multi-layered and improvised voice is accompanied by her fluid piano playing and subtle arrangements for double-bass, brass, percussion, oud and violin.

Born into a musical family in Lodz, Poland, London-based Gorna brings a wealth of musical experience to her work. She combines a thorough classical piano training with deep research into European folk traditions, and a love of jazz, which she studied at the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice.

The result is a music that is sophisticated and audacious, wordless songs that express more emotion than lyrics can describe, delivered in a personal voice that takes the listener on a musical journey full of passion, soul searching and celebration.

BBC Radio 3 World Music Awards has presented the album 'Hashgachah' for nomination in the category of 'newcomer', 2004.
