Mami? is everywhere these days, raising the rafters at Llewellyn Hall and smaller venues. Born in Canberra, she moved to Croatia when she was five, making her first public appearance as a singer at age 7, then later graduating there in medicine and vocal performance before returning to Canberra, where she is doing a Master’s at the ANU School of Music under tenor Paul McMahon.
