Thank you for the follow-up. I will have my manager contact them after the first of the year. I checked out the website and noticed that the Novi Sad Festival, as well as the Belgrade Festival sound promising. It appears that they have workshop opportunities, which I have a lot of experience doing, so, maybe be will get a chance to meet? I enjoy your sound. Keep making great music.
Hope you are doing well. Stopping by to wish you happy holidays. Would be nice to network regarding performance opportunities in Serbia next year for me. Poke me back when you get a chance.

Nicolas has been a member of Bobby McFerrin’s renowned a cappella ensemble “ Voicestra” since 1990, as well as a solo artist in his own right.

In 2005, Nicolas released his second CD, “ All about Love” which rose to #7 on the charts on Canadian Smooth Jazz radio, followed in 2008 by his release of “Live at Yoshis – A salute to Lou – a tribute to the music of legendary Lou Rawls.
You make beautiful music! Thanks for your comments and for stopping by my page. I'm opening the NicolasBeardenetwork.com through the Jazz Network and I invite you to stop by sometime. You can do your own as well. Check it out and let me know how you like it.
Hey Maja thankyou for your comments. I am just working on a new recording so I appreciate your thoughts. Should be better than anything on my page so far which isn't the best recording...but thanks for reaching out across the ocean to me. I loooove your music too but am at work and not able to give it a full hearing . Will do so later. Beautiful though. Regards Yolanda
Maja, I just heard your version of Misty, one of my favourite tunes, and I love the way that you fashion it, playing the minimum of notes but still maintaining the melody. It's what I try to do in my gouache portraits, let the viewer see what I haven't painted. Looking forward to hearing more of your work, Del.
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
Let's be audacious, my friends!
