Somi - The Joyce and George T Wein Shape of Jazz Series

Friday, November 18, 2022, 9 pm
Zankel Hall @ Carnegie Hall
New York, NY

With a transatlantic mix of jazz, soul, and African pop, Somi has been called “the new high priestess of soul” (The Huffington Post), praised for “the earthy gutsiness of Nina Simone blended with the vocal beauty of Dianne Reeves” (JazzTimes). In each performance, she sheds new light on subjects from the gentrification of African immigrant communities in Harlem to the lives of icons like her own personal mentor, Hugh Masekela.
