Shakura S’AidaCognac Blues Passions | Jarnac, France | 2015
Born in Brooklyn, raised in Switzerland, and now a Canadian resident, Shakura S’Aida knows how to sing and how to perform. On stage she screams her sorrow and joy, bursts in laughters, lasciviously dances. From old jazz to blues and rhythm’n blues, she exhibits an enthusiastic personality, a boiling temper, unfolding a rich, soulful voice, laced with a wide array of emotions. But watch out, admirers, Don’t Try to Lay No Boogie Woogie on the Queen of Rock & Soul!
