Alexia - The Untold Story of Women in Jazz
For two appearances on RED Music Stage
Alexia Vassiliou comes for two unique appearances at the RED Music Stage in Nicosia on Saturday, 14th December, 2019 and Saturday, 4th January, 2020.
Alexia pays tribute to some of the greatest female voices of Jazz - Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Betty Carter, Anita O’Day, Abbey Lincoln, Felicia Sanders, and many others, through their more obscure - unknown songs; shedding light on who they were, and how they felt about everything around them, in the World, and in their personal lives, and how they influenced Society, through their activism. The Untold Story of Women in Jazz, also sheds light to Alexia’s own untold story in music. These Songs are their Stories.
Alexia will be accompanied by a 5-piece orchestra, comprised of select renowned Jazz musicians from Cyprus, who are versatile both in Jazz and Classical music, with their talent influenced by the Blues, Gospel and Improvisation. The show also includes small video excerpts of each Jazz legend; hearing their own voices, and what this style of music means to them.
The authentic sound of Classic American Jazz is brought to life by Alexia, through her studies, experience, research, and performance of Jazz, for over 30 years; with some of the leading Jazz musicians from around the world.
“Alexia – The Untold Story of Women in Jazz” is an ode to Authenticity, recognising and honouring the Legacy that these women have left behind - their unique musical styles, phrasing, and approach.
