Sanja Markovic is a composer, jazz vocalist, instrumentalist, arranger and producer.
"Gentle and wondrous effects of my childhood have left me little choice but to never step aside from music and creation. Toggling as a teenager between East Coast US and my hometown of Zemun (Belgrade, Serbia), I’ve continued on my varying musical path from studying classical music to developing a passion and taste for live jazz music. United States has given me a chance to linger on the path of piano studies with professor Eva Pierrou in Washinton D.C. I’ve attained a Masters Degree at the Academy of Music in Belgrade. Expressing my ideas in these past years have led me to embarking upon a solitary path of composition and music production..."
In addition to engaging in various theaters (Terazije Theater, Belgrade Drama Theater and Zvezdara Theater), composing music for DAH Theater - Center for Theater Research) and “The Secondhanders” - music/theater group (SKC, KCSG, Cvijeta Zuzoric, "Donau Fest" Ulm, Germany), In New York, I co-operated with a videographic house for whome I regularly composed music. Other commercial clients included: United Nations (NYC), Leo Burnett (NYC), etc.
In Hoboken, NJ, I've studied music production at the “Water Music Studio” with Rob Grenoble, and also taught piano and music theory in NYC schools.
Upon returning to Belgrade, I actively performed as a jazz singer, writing my own arrangement for the Big Band ("The Mystery of Man", Big Band RTS) that we've performed live at Kolarac concert hall 2012. In October 2014, I formed a band" Brazilian Jazz Collective” with whom I regularly performed as a jazz singer and guitarist (Arlemm festival,KCSG, Trg republike, numerous jazz clubs).
I have produced my first album "Ascension" that is to be released this year.
