Ida, who hails from Kangar, Perlis is nicknamed The Jazzbird. She is known for her velvety voice and is armed with a charm that is both captivating and fun.

Mainly influenced by Blossom Dearie, Ella Fitzgerald, Billy Holiday, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Lara Fygi, Tony Bennett and Frank Sinatra, this accomplished vocalist is always ready to charm your heart.
KL-born Elvira has worked with local artistes Datuk Sheila Majid, Misha Omar, Reshmonu, Jaclyn Victor and VE as well as international stars Kenny B, Rachel White and Phil Perry over the years.
Also a theatre actress, she blew fans away as Effie in the Malaysian staging of Dreamgirls last year.
Ida says: “We have been singing together for quite some time and since we’re so different vocally, something magical happens when we come together.”
