Somi at Scullers Jazz Club!

March 18, 2017    8:00 pm to 9:30 pm

Scullers Jazz Club Presents Somi!

Born in Illinois to immigrants from Rwanda and Uganga, African and Jazz legacies are crucial to Somi's sound. Referred to as a modern-day Miriam Makeba, JazzTimes magazine describes her performance as "the earthy gutsiness of Nina Simone blended with the fluid vocal beauty of Dianne Reeves," while Billboard remarks that she's "all elegance and awe... utterly captivating."

Somi is a TED Senior Fellow, inaugural Association of Performing Arts Presenters Fellow, founder of the non-profit New Africa Live, and a two-time recipient of the Doris Duke Foundation's French-American Jazz Exchange Composers' Grant. She was a 2015 Artist-inResidence at UCLA's Center for the Art of Performance and The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation.

Somi's new recording, Petite Afrique is set for Spring 2017 release.

Show: $35
Dinner & Show: $85
