Opening for The Mini Miri Jazz Fest is none other than songstress extraordinaire,
Miss Elvira

Comfortable sharing the stage with local living legends such as Lewis Pragasam, Andy Peterson, and Ricky Omar to name a few, she’s also been featured on a host of award-winning radio and television commercials, not to mention advertising campaigns. Somewhere along the way she even found herself backing some of the most sought after local artistes of the industry such as Sheila Majid, Jaclyn Victor, and Reshmonu.
