Popular Turkish summer spot Bodrum will host two Polish jazz female vocalists this week. Already known to Turkish audience, Anna Maria Jopek in Bodrum Castle, and the “new hope of jazz scene," Aga Zaryan, in Cabo Verde club in Yalkavak Marina, are going to give their concerts tonight.

Sometimes I'm in ballad mood, other times I want to play more energetically. In Turkey, it will be my guest performance and I won't perform with my regular squad this time, so simply anything can happen." Zaryan will be accompanied by Tony Jones on double bass, Monica Bulanda on drums, famous Turkish trumpeter enova lker and pianist Uraz Kvaner, with whom she used to play during her past performances in Poland.

Aga Zaryan has already released three solo albums.
