“[Lawry is] an Australian jazz singer with a spring-like tone, a nimble technique and a grasp of shading and pacing…”
–The New York Times
The influences and improvisational fluidity of jazz take center stage in a thrilling double bill of female vocalists who infuse their sets with unique musical cultures and perspectives. Jazz meets folk, while heartbreak meets humor in the sparkling original songs of Australian-born vocalist Jo Lawry, whom has been touring and recording with Sting and Paul Simon and was featured in the Academy Award-winning film 20 Feet From Stardom. Kavita Shah seamlessly weaves together diverse cultural traditions into her jazz-based repertoire, from the Indian table and West African kora to African and Brazilian rhythms, placing seemingly eclectic songs, instruments, and artists in dialogue with one another to create a new type of jazz with global sensibilities that defies categorization.
