presents "Hot Grrrls Cool Music" featuring Imani Uzuri presents "Hot Grrrls Cool Music" featuring Imani Uzuri

Recently praised in the New York Times for her "gorgeously chesty ruminations", vocalist, composer Imani Uzuri is an eclectic interdisciplinary artist who travels and performs internationally.

The Village Voice says, “With a voice that would sound equally at home on an opera stage or a disco 12-inch, Imani Uzuri is a constant surprise...seamlessly combining jazz, classical, country and blues motifs into highly personalized compositions.”

Uzuri has collaborated with a wide range of noted artists across various disciplines including Herbie Hancock, Wangechi Mutu, John Legend, Vijay Iyer, Carrie Mae Weems, Camille A. Brown, Sanford Biggers, and Robert Ashely. Her television credits include a featured commercial on BET for their Black History Month campaign, Jimmy Fallon show performing with Talib Kweli and the Roots, and David Letterman with Peter Gabriel. Her acclaimed new album The Gypsy Diaries draws on her rural Southern roots as well as influences ranging from Sufi devotionals to Roman laments.

Uzuri is currently composing a new musical written by playwright Zakiyyah Alexander, GIRL Shakes Lose Her Skin, inspired by the works of Philadelphia Poet Laureate Sonia Sanchez. In 2013, Uzuri premiered her first orchestral composition "Placeless" at Ecstatic Music Festival and was subsequently named by The New Yorker as one of the emerging “female composers edg[ing] forward”. Time Out New York says, "[Imani Uzuri] never fails to mesmerize with her narcotic blend of...ethereal sound."

Ginny's is excited to welcome Ms Uzuri to Harlem for what's sure to be a "hot" performance.
