Emily & Nikola
An acoustic duo of voice and piano.
Emily Jane and NikoLaLa are a duo of voice and piano, formed to take you on a musical journey through time starting in the 1940s and ending in the present times! They met by chance via a musical WhatsApp group but their musical chemistry was instant and they clicked straight away. It seems that the universe brought them together as they not only share a passion for music, but both have a very similar taste in song choices, both have a crazy side to their personalities and both have beautiful blue eyes! A musical match made in heaven. Their repertoire ranges from jazz from the 1940s, 50s and 60s to include singers such as Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, to pop, soul and RnB from the 1970s, 80s and 90s with covers from singers including Elton John, ELvis Presley, Whitney Houston and Britney Spears up to the 2000s to present day to include singers such as Adele, Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran and Sia. They also perform their own compositions.
I am an English/Spanish woman living in Switzerland. After studying music and teacher training at university, I love to pass on my passion to others, either through teaching children or performing in concerts. I also write my own music and am working on releasing an EP this year. Performing with Nikola is one of the most exciting parts of my life and I love that we have connected both musically and in friendship.
I am a Slovak woman who can´t imagine her life without music. Piano is my biggest passion and I was lucky enough to turn it into my job. I worked as a pianist in the Canary Islands and in Prague. Now living in Switzerland I teach piano to children and adults. Meeting Emily and creating our duo has been one big adventure and I enjoy every moment of it.
