YOVA Трубадур

The Macedonian-British duo YOVA, composed of Jova Radevska (vocals) and Mark Vernon (guitar, piano, and various instruments), had a performance at the legendary London pub Troubadour on 25/10/2023 (Wednesday). Performing at the Troubadour is a significant opportunity, as the audience is known to be highly musically knowledgeable, and it often includes industry professionals.

We reached out to Jova to get some insights into her experience performing at this iconic pub Troubadour and to learn more about the atmosphere at the gig.

“The event went very well, with great sound and attendance. We are very pleased, and it was an added bonus to have BJ Cole in the audience, as he sometimes performs with us on stage”.

said Jova Radevska

During their performance at the Troubadour, Jova and Mark were joined on stage by Alex Thomas. Along with YOVA, Leo Walrus and TJ Owuso also performed on the same night. This occasion marked the first time the group played their current single, “The Dreamcatchers”.

It has also been a launching pad for emerging musicians, including well-known acts like the Chemical Brothers, Adele, Florence and the Machine, Ed Sheeran, and Hozier.
