Aga Zaryan - vocal finesse

Remembering Nina & Abbey a tribute to Nina Simone and Abbey Lincoln

European vocalist Aga Zaryan conveys the finest of jazz to today's audiences, continuing the traditions of great divas like Shirley Horn, Carmen McRae and Joni Mitchell. She is known for her distinctive style and intimate approach to singing with a characteristic lightness of phrasing and slightly matte-toned voice. Warm, engaging and very personal, shes the unique interpreter of both contemporary and classic jazz repertoire - A rare gem they say.

Her reputation as a great performer spans from the Europe to Japan. Her bestselling CDs Picking Up The Pieces, "Looking Walking Being" and A Book of Luminous Things have been released on Blue Note Records. She was named Jazz Vocalist of The Year in the European Jazz Forum Magazine's yearly Jazz Top readers' poll in 2007-2012 Yet she is a significant talent that still awaits true mainstream recognition.
