Jasna is involved in our research work and published this article in our July 2022 magazine: Artistic Research in Jazz: A New Polygon for female artistic research positioning 

‘I've always been a musician. The sound led me, protected me, taught me and showed me the path. Trust, admiration, respect and humility towards music have shaped me in time. It deleted old, and created new records in my DNA.Music is the manifestation of the Supreme. The vibration of sound leads me through the visible and invisible. Creates and deletes illusion, expands the space and time, leads me through the darkness. Each tone that has been played, is my prayer and thanksgiving to Music. Merging with sound, transformation of consciousness through sound frequency brings me closer to Self. Music is a tool, path and destination.“
