Nina Simone-Miriam Makeba Tribute with Akua Allrich
Event Type: music/performance
Just in time for Women’s History Month, we bring back one of our favorite events and celebrate two of the most important voices in musical history. Akua Allrich, a jazz treasure, has a vocal style that is fluid and ever evolving. Her musical roots run deep into blues, soul, and rhythm and blues, with a clear grounding in jazz and pan-African music. She sings in many languages, including Portuguese, French, Spanish, English, Xhosa, and Twi. Given her ability to capture the essence of a broad range of musical genres, Allrich is often compared to legendary artists such as Oscar Brown, Jr., Miriam Makeba, and Nina Simone. Akua will honor both female luminaries in this evening’s program.
