Lyambiko Sings Gershwin

Lyambiko, a German vocalist of Tanzanian descent, will be the star of an annual Christmas gala concert organized by the Jazz Era concert agency. Lyambiko was born in the German state of Thuringia to a family with long-standing musical traditions. As a child, she took music lessons and became an accomplished singer. She was still in her teens when she formed her first folk and blues band, but her career did not take off until 1999 when she moved to Berlin. As a music academy student, she toured extensively with various groups, mostly reinterpreting jazz standards.

Her career gained momentum when she formed the Lyambiko Strange Fruit duo and embarked on a tour with American vocalist Mark Murphy, performing before enthusiastic audiences across Europe and the United States. Soon she became a much sought after performer who with a string of new bands released several albums (Shades of Delight, Lyambiko, Love and Then, Inner Sense). Her latest album, entitled Lyambiko Sings Gershwin, won the Echo Jazz Award, the German equivalent of a Grammy, and earned her the title of Female Vocalist of the Year 2011.

The album dedicated to the king of jazz hits became a European bestseller just several weeks after release. Lyambiko will sing her innovative interpretations of “I Got Rhythm,” “Summertime” and “Fascinating Rhythm” along with Christmas standards during two concerts in Warsaw and ŁódĽ.
