Ivana Vukmirovic - Manivi is a singer/ songwriter and multi instrumentalist from Belgrade, Serbia.
A pseudonym Manivi is rooted in ancient Sanskrit word ’’mani’’ which stands for the greatest treasure one can have in terms of non-material wealth.

 

Her songs are deeply rooted in Soul and Jazz music heritage; the lyrics reflect a strong inner voice of a young woman discovering her femininity. Her voice is powerful but also warm and soothing, a unique combination of Balkan roots

and soulful influences.

Growing up in Croatia, facing war and leaving her home as a refugee, she faced many difficulties and she discovered very early on that songwriting is her way to look at the situation from an outside point, to accept it and to overcome.

Her music is a mirror of self-growth, an honest talk about trust, intimacy, love, fears and struggles, supported but powerful groove that makes you move your body while listening to the story.

After graduating from Faculty of Music in Belgrade, she moved to Berlin in July 2019. Since then she is participating in different music projects combing jazz, soul, electronic and Balkan music. Multicultural environment and musical diversity in Berlin, gave a fresh input to Ivana’s songwriting. Manivi has published two studio albums- Manivi (2016) and Mirror (2021) and two singles in Serbian language - Kad bi meni dali jedan dan (2016), Nek izgore (2022).

 

Manivi’s band is an assembly of talented and high skilled musicians with different backgrounds and influences, who perfectly compliment each other while performing and telling the story together:

 

Ivana Vukmirović Manivi - vocal, guitar

Dragan Ćalina- vocal, piano

Dejan Antović- bass

Pedja Milutinović- drums

Ivana Vukmirović Manivi je kantautorka koja živi i radi u Beogradu. Iza sebe ima dva albuma autorske muzike, prvi nazvan jednostavno ''Manivi", i drugi nazvan "Mirror" po istoimenoj naslovnoj numeri. Mirror je nastao nakon Ivaninog povratka iz Berlina.

Multikulturalna sredina i raznolik umetnički život u Berlinu doneli su novu perspektivu njenom autorskom stvaralaštvu. Za razliku od prvog albuma iz 2016. godine koji je u potpunosti snimljen uživo i sastoji se od 9 pretežno main stream R&B i soul numera, "Mirror" je kombinacija soulful melodija, progresivnih harmonskih aranžmana i elektronske muzike. Kolaboracija vrsnih džez/soul muzičara koji cine bend Manivi i njihova kompatibilnim u muzičkom senzibilitetu donela je ovom autorskom bendu nesvakidašnju mešavinu stilova I različitih muzičkih uticaja. Ta interakcija se poput magije prenosi na publiku i to je upravo jedan od razloga zašto se uvek ponovo dolazi na njihov nastup.
