Diane Nalini: Songs of Sweet Fire
April 23 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDT
Vocalist Diane Nalini celebrates William Shakespeare’s birthday with a live performance of songs from her album Songs of Sweet Fire in which she set the Bard’s words to her original jazz, bossa, folk, and blues music. Diane will be joined by David Renaud (woodwinds), John Geggie (double bass), and Lucas Denison (drums).
Diane started singing at the age of three. Born in Montreal to Belgian and Goan parents, she sings and writes songs in four languages (English, French, Portuguese and Spanish). Her multilingual repertoire draws from her lifelong passion for jazz, French Chanson, Brazilian popular song, and great literature. An accomplished songwriter, composer, and lyricist, Diane has written or co-written songs that have been used in major Hollywood releases, indie films, television shows and video games. Diane has released five wide ranging and warmly received albums, and has given gala performances for President Bill Clinton and Sir Paul McCartney. She was one of two finalists for the UK’s Young Jazz Vocalist of the Year in 2001, and was nominated for the Grand Prix de Jazz General Motors at the 2002 Montreal International Jazz Festival.
