About Maya Nova
Maya Nova has performed internationally at concerts, festivals, jazz clubs and even in Denmark, Norway, Cypress, Singapore, Malaysia, India, China, South Korea.

Since 2002 she lives in Singapore, teaching voice at Jazz and Popular Music Department of LaSalle College of The Arts and combining it with a busy performance schedule.

In 2009, Nova was a semi-finalist of the prestigious Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition performing at the 43rd Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. 2010 saw her debut release entitled OPEN, dedicated to her late father. Jazz critic and writer Ian Patterson wrote about the album:
“Open, her debut recording, sees Nova wrapping her vocal chords around a selection of mostly standards, extracting the most out of familiar tunes with her surprising vocal range and uninhibited improvisations.”

Her recent collaborations include performances with Jeremy Monteiro trio and Rick Smith trio at INK Jazz Bar, Singapore and a project with renowned US saxophone player and composer Rick Margitza for International Jazz Festival Bansko (Bulgaria) and Nisville Jazz Festival (Serbia).
