Nana Rashid is a Danish jazz artist with roots in Oman and Zanzibar. The nerve of everything Nana does is a belief that music can reveal all that is human. The listener is met with such honesty and openness, the invisible but tangible bond that binds people together. At the same time, it is intense and touching. With fresh eyes on classic jazz standards, Nana sings her way into contemporary dilemmas. Songs filled with the melancholy and thoughtfulness of the night hours. Themes of belonging and becoming one’s own, the difficult love, of being a woman and all the expectations that come with it. Reviewers describe Nana as proof that great and undiscovered talent still exists in jazz. Nana Rashid is a singer with an amazing voice and an approach to music that is naked, vulnerable and strong. Her empathy and immediate musicality have been compared to greats such as Nina Simone.
Should also add that she received a Danish Grammy for the album “Music for Betty”, which has also received good reviews internationally.
Lira wrote: “An excellent album with a singer whose soulful voice is here perfectly framed in timeless music.”
She is accompanied by the trio “The Little North” which are released on ACT when they play instrumentals.
