Carmen Souza
Live at Lagny Jazz Festival Tour

Carmen Souza stands out as one of the most in-demand jazz and world singers in Europe. Her vocal approach has been compared to singers like Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, and Eartha Kitt, but this singer-songwriter has created her own idiosyncratic soundscape. Her mix of West African rhythms with contemporary jazz has been hailed by DownBeat Magazine as a "recipe for artistic success." Souza was born in Lisbon within a family of Cape Verdeans, and grew up in a multilingual environment with a mixture of Portuguese and Creole, the local dialect her parents spoke at home.

Performance Timing: 90 minutes, with no intermission.
