She collaborates with guitarist Lionel Loueke, having toured Europe, West Africa and Asia, and having recorded the highly acclaimed duo album “Obsession” (Echo Jazz Award and German Critics Nominee/ Jahresliste Deutsche Schallplattenkritik). “This is a very unique project because there are no boundaries. I knew from the start that we are kind of from the same tribe,” says Lionel Loueke. Besides performing with Lionel and her quartet, the vocalist started a solo programme combining loops, effects, percussion and guitar.
Her new album PEARLS (out 21 June) which she produced with drummer Jamire Williams in Brooklyn NY, creates a new color in her musical jewelry box that blends singer-songwriter melodies with urban jazz.
