Since graduating from London's prestigious Guildhall College of Music, Mishka has honed not only her vocal skills, but as is clear from this new album she has also developed admirably her compositional and arranging skills. Here she puts her indelible stamp on a hand picked collection of songs internationally know and loved. Here Star Eyes
gets a pulsating Bossa Nova treatment, while the groovy Benny Golson classic Whisper Not
and the poignant rendition of Stranger in the Shore
emphasize the lyrics to great effect. Other highlights showcase Mishka's passion for the 'Great French Songbook' as she sings Sous le ciel de Paris
in its native tongue and likewise Chico Barque's masterpiece Beatriz
. Another landmark album from this Anglo-Filipina artist.
