Currently based in Prague, Czech Republic, Juwana has sung, danced, acted and moderated on stages and screens in the US, Europe and Asia. During her 20 year music career she has worked with a diverse array of well-respected and award winning artists including Ondřej Pivec and Roman Pokorný (2 time Jazz Academy award winner), Jan Kořínek, Jan Martínek and awardwinning producer Steve Walsh (US). As a charismatic, highly dynamic vocalist, Juwana served as a front-woman for bands including Tonny’s Blues Band, Murphy Band, Tina Turner Tribute and, most notably, her own backing All- Star Mojo Band, before embarking on her solo career in January 2018 with debut single Long Time. Her much-acclaimed collaboration with noted harmonica player Charlie Slavik, The Blues Keeps You Alive (Charisma Records, 2012), garnered the attention of music critics and earned Jenkins the title of “Blues Queen”. With soul-shaking vocals, searing harmonica and wailing guitars to a driving beat, Juwana Jenkins energetically entertains with high-powered originals and the best from the kings, queens and wild legends of the blues. With the power of an uncompromising, swinging bulldozer, Juwana takes you on a rough and raw journey through America to the tune of original songs, highlighting different shades of the blues, including West Coast Swing, Mississippi Delta, Memphis Soul, Chicago Blues, Detroit Motown and early funk. To complete the vibe Juwana handpicked her band selecting musicians who even opened for former Rolling Stone Mick Taylor, toured with American Blues sensations and performed at numerous galas, events and international festivals throughout Europe, Asia and America.
