Basia's full name is Basia Trzetrzelewska, which is obviously why she goes by her first name in countries where people don't speak Polish. Her first name is pronounced "basha", as I recall, but I have absolutely no clue how to pronounce her last name. She used to be a backup vocalist with the pop/jazz band Matt Bianco (remember "whose side are you onnnnnn?") and then embarked on a solo career in the late 80s. As I remember she did pretty well in the UK, but never really cracked the north american market.
