Sing Sistah Sing!

17:55, 19 - 26 Aug

Internationally renowned singer Andrea Baker celebrates the extraordinary breadth of the African American female voice. A joyous mix of storytelling, jazz, blues, gospel, featuring singers including: Leontyne Price, Donna Summer, Nina Simone and the great Billie Holiday, with rollicking piano virtuosity from Richard Lewis. Sing Sistah Sing! weaves together these women's struggles in the civil rights movement with their fight for artistic freedom, and at its heart, is what all African American women carry in their souls and voices: the sounds of their ancestors' songs of the plantation. 'A mezzo with a sublime voice' (Sydney Morning Herald).
