Monika Hoffman

MONIKA HOFFMAN is a Swedish singer with Hungarian-German roots. She is at home not only in classical music, latin, jazz and pop, but also in three languages, namely Swedish, Hungarian and English – all of which she uses for shades of musical expression that are quite distinct. Monika Hoffman studied at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she played with legends like Michael Brecker and Charlie Haden. In Hungary she became well known for participating in the TV show Megasztár – Voice of the Year, which resulted in a recording contract and a spot in the Hungarian finals for the Eurovision Song Contest. The follow-up to her latin vocal jazz album Let‘s Run Away (feat. Paquito D‘Rivera) – also in the mochermusic catalogue - TEN MUSES is her new album and entirely produced by mochermusic in Stuttgart, Germany.
