Sharel Cassity & Elektra

Loading the player...

One of the most exciting alto talents to come to prominence in the past decade, Sharel Cassity has quickly built a sterling reputation working alongside a veritable “Who’s Who” of jazz. As her career has continued to flourish, projects under her leadership have grown, developed and diversified. With Elektra, Sharel blends a disparate set of genres—jazz, rock, soul, electronica, hip hop—into a creative, groove-driven sound for the audience. Drawing on such atypical composer choices as Björk and Alicia Keys, Sharel offers up a funky, eclectic and exciting mix of music.
