Concert en uitreiking
During North Sea Round Town - the fringe festival of North Sea Jazz Festival - the Edison's Jazz / World will be presented in LantarenVenster. The evening is presented by Wilfried de Jong. Just like last year, there will be a free jam session with national jazz musicians afterwards. This jam session promises to be a smashing end to a memorable evening.
The singer, born in Benin, is also called 'the largest diva in Africa'. Her versatile oeuvre and musical qualities make this international star worthy to win the Edison Jazz / World Oeuvre prize like no other. In her music you hear West African traditional music and American R&B, funk and jazz, but also influences from European and Latin American music.
