It's late at night and I am very tired.
Portland Jazz Festival opened tonight with Brazillian singer, Bebel Gilberto.
Bebel got her swagger. She is a Rio girl, love to dance, love to connect with people.
What took my awe was the opening act though- Somi.
Somi website www.somimusic.com
She was born in Chicago but grew up in Zambia. She talks elegantly, sings with such conviction you want to cry even though it's in a language you don't understand. Her range is exceptional and her songs were well selected.
Aw, to be in love.
I want to see more Jazz in coming weeks!!
Thank you for reading, have a great weekend!
