I hope you're all doing well?
Since June started I found some more hours to be able to work on my next album 'Hommage to Grämlis' and it's been very exciting! Right now I'm working on an a cappella version of 'Heaven', one of my absolute favorites by the great Sir Duke Ellington! It reminds me through so many facets of how I experienced my wonderful, idyllic and so truly loved childhood in the midst of pure mother nature on the farm Grämlis I grew up in gorgeous Switzerland. I hope that all of you can visit this place one day....
I wanted to invite you all to my concert in NYC on Sunday June 10th 7pm at Rockwood Music Hall.
I really hope that you can make it since we'll be presenting some of my new tunes at this gig.

“Gabriela Martina’s Swiss roots offer an incredible range as she practically yodels her way through “Narcissus” en route to her mostly originals program on No White Shoes (Self Release; 55:42 ★★★★). Her delivery is a blend of jazz with pop improvisation, and her creative, invested covers of Wayne Shorter’s “Witch Hunt” (stunningly sung as overdubbed a cappella) and Dizzy Gillespie’s “A Night In Tunisia” (a flat-out rocker featuring guitarist Jussi Reijonen) uproot convention.”
