China Moses (US) feat. UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra – Great Voices

 

American jazz singer and songwriter China Moses, who made her first visit to UMO Helsinki Jazz Orchestra in November 2020, will return to Finland in spring 2023. The concerts at Dance House Helsinki is part of UMO’s Great Voices series, dedicated to stellar vocalists from around the world.

 

The repertoire of the concert is compiled from the forgotten and unforgettable gems of vocal jazz, as well as China Moses’ own compositions with brand new big band arrangements. The concerts will be conducted by UMO’s chief conductor and artistic director Ed Partyka, who will also arrange the majority of the renewed repertoire. 

 

Having won over audiences around the world, this power woman takes jazz to a new era and creates her own standards. A winning performer, China Moses (b. 1978) approaches jazz in her compelling, unconventional and eclectic way. So far, Moses has issued six solo albums and appeared on dozens of recordings as a sidewoman. In addition to her career as a musician, the versatile artist has appeared on silver screen and worked as a TV and radio host.
