Soul Music This Saturday By the multi-talented Azania
â€œI simply compose what I feel, and Iâ€™m inspired by different styles. To me what's most important are the message and emotion of each song. If you feel it, thatâ€™s all that countsâ€.
Few people are born with the gift of instantly touching people's hearts with their voice. Azania is one of them.
Originally from Sierra Leone, West Africa, this multi-cultural artist was born and raised in the U.S. and in Geneva, Switzerland.
Azania's powerful voice, captivating energy and positive charisma make her a phenomenal performer and a joy to see on stage. She has performed hundreds of concerts around Europe and in Asia. She has also been invited to sing in major music festivals, such as the world-renowned Montreux Jazz festival. In Paris, she won first prize in the French T.V. competition 'Graines de Star' on M6TV. Broadcast to over 4 million viewers, it was the first French show similar to 'American Idol' and 'X-Factor'.
Azania loves exploring various facets of her voice in different styles of music. During her 12 years-plus of classical opera voice training, she sang in many different bands of not only soul and funk, but also jazz to disco, electro/house to gospel, reggae to musical theater. Azania's compositions evolve from diverse musical influences. “I simply compose what I feel, and I’m inspired by different styles. To me what's most important are the message and emotion of each song. If you feel it, that’s all that counts”.
On Saturday, at 7PM, Azania, now New York-based will be giving a special performance at this February's edition of “Jeremiah presents Artists you ought to know”.
