American jazz vocalist Loretta Holloway will be flying down to India for a short concert tour in Mumbai and Bengaluru.Holloway follows in the footsteps of legendary jazz singer Eartha Kitt as the First Lady of Song in her state of South Carolina.
On her India tour, Loretta will be accompanied by Italian bass player Gianluca Liberatore, drummer Aron Nyiro from Hungary and local piano virtuoso Anurag Naidu.Loretta Holloway has been influenced by Nancy Wilson but sings in her very own style. She has been dubbed a â€œsinging actressâ€ because she delivers her lyrics in almost conversational style, constantly engaging the audience.
Loretta has performed with Stevie Wonder and her singing has been appreciated by jazz greats Count Basie, Joe Williams and others, in a musical career that has had her perform in several parts of the world and throughout the United States.It promises to be an exciting concert for music lovers on August 21.
