A World In London 223 - Dunja Botic Sat, 2017-05-13 05:29

Soulful, sultry, and sensational singer Dunja Botic on this A World in London!

We’ve known Dunja Botic for two years as the superb multi-lingual lead-vocalist for brilliant band Don Kipper, but respectful of her place as their newest member she’s also been the ‘quiet one’. On this AWIL Dunja tells her own story and reveals what lies behind one of the most perfect, earthy, and assured singing voices in London. Her Greek & Serbian origins, Pink Floyd phase, meticulous interpretation of each song she covers, and, the talented family that have supported her, awestruck by her even greater talent. Our music scene is already enriched by Dunja’s presence, but through her new vocal workshop masterclasses and bands like The Near East Collective, the best is yet to come! Find out more at and see her on stage with Don Kipper May 12 at Juju’s, May 13 at Edgar’s, and in July at Womad! Also on this AWIL, new albums by Meklit, Svang, Mulatu Astatke, and a tribute to DJ Robert Miles.
