Luisa Annibali Quartet @ Bray Jazz Festival 2024

Friday, 3 May 2024, 6.00pm

Luisa Annibali is an Italian-born singer who plays a mix of jazz, soul, swing and Brazilian music. She is one of the leading lights in the new generation of jazz on the Dublin scene.

Since moving from Rome to Dublin in 2016, she has quickly established herself, with her boundless enthusiasm and vocal prowess.

Her new track ‘My Own Paradise’ is a perfect example of her own personal take on jazz music, mixing feminist themes in her lyrics with contemporary jazz undertones reminiscent of artists such as Esperanza Spalding and Gretchen Parlato. The music feels fresh and cutting edge while never losing sight of its roots in the jazz standard repertoire.

Indeed, it is also the encounter between people from different cultures and musical influences that makes her music and her performances so unique. Her lyrics are often focused on self development and self love.

All the compositions are written by the leader, and many arrangements are written with and by the Brazilian guitarist of the band Johnny Batista.

She leads a number of jazz, swing and latin jazz ensembles and is the host and MC at a popular and successful jazz club at the landmark Whelan’s music venue in Dublin city.
