Eloquent and provocative singer-songwriter, Zara McFarlane, the UK’s foremost female black Jazz Vocalist, will perform at the August 24 on Dubrovnik Summer Festival. The concert will take place @ Reveli Fort Terrace and artists who will perform with Zara are Peter Edwards/piano, Duncan Eagles/tenor sax, Max Luthert/double bass and Sam Jones/ drums.
With two critically acclaimed albums to her name, she inhabits an unusual musical landscape drawing from many influences; from the deep spiritual jazz of Pharoah Sanders to nu-soul, dub and reggae.
Zara has been called ‘a caressing voice of sparkling clarity’ and ‘vocally akin to early Nina Simone and Roberta Flack’.
The lyrically conscious songwriter has been recognised with a Best Jazz MOBO Award in 2014, an Urban Music Award for Best Jazz Act 2015 and a Jazz FM Award Vocalist of the Year award in 2015.
