Jelena Soro is an oboist, vocalist, composer and arranger. Both of her oboe sound and voice color come from a unique mixture of Balkan traditional music heritage, Classical music training and years of free improvisation performances. She holds a Master degree from Berklee College of Music (Valencia) in Contemporary Performance.
Jelena is a leading musician in the etno music scene in Slovenia with the status of self-employed musician accredited by Ministry of Culture. If you need a voice with world music/traditional flavor or you want to add an exotic sound of oboe to your music piece, this is the right match.
Outside of her speciality, Jelena is also collaborating and performing with musicians in other genres, from psychedelic rock, punk to electronic and classical and film music.
Jelena is currently publishing her 3rd CD of original compositions performed by the band PostArt Ensemble.

I worked with Jelena for the better part of a year. She provided both oboe and vocals for a project.
With oboe, she brought my charts to life, with a sense phrasing, ornamentation, articulation, and improvisation that can't be replicated with a synth or sampler.
For vocals, she provided her own ideas, all of which were amazing. I felt she really had a grasp on what the music needed - performing just the right thing at the right time, and laying out when the music didn't call for it.
Another extraordinary recording Session. Thank you so much Jelena
Another amazing experience. Totally brilliant performances (oboe and vocals). thank you so much!
Absolutely spectacular singer and oboeist. I am so totally blown away with the results of our collaboration. The piece she worked on was totally transformed in a way i could not have imagined possible. Very very happy. We will be working together again soon.
Jelena is very professional, worked on her with a film score, and not only was has she provided me with a great track, she also was very aware that she needed to understand, why, how and when this piece is played and therefore played it perfectly to the scenario, not many musicians do that. A+
