Francesca Mondi DuoToulouse Lautrec Jazz Club, SE11 4RN, [Venue Details]
“You definitely need Francesca Mondi in your life. Yes, it is jazz being given a pop make-over, but rather than a conflict of genres and the toning down of the key elements which define each of them, Francesca manages to bring out the best of both.”
– A&R Factory –
Francesca Mondi is a London Jazz singer and a Song-writer, performing standards from the American songbook, Brazilian Bossa nova and original compositions. Her song-writing draws from Trad Jazz, Blues and Dixieland, adding an alternative, contemporary edge.
She “…combines jazz and accessible pop; bringing out the best in both… in the perfect meeting of musical minds”.
Francesca was featured by Nigel Williams on Jazz Fm and Giles Peterson Worldwide for her lead vocals on the track ‘Southern Freez’ and her EP was showcased on BBC Radio London Introducing. She has since established herself as an artist and working musician, performing regularly alongside some of London’s top young jazz musicians, singing in Portuguese, Italian and English.
Her latest releases include the single “In a Man’s Arms” with and debut music video directed by Gray Hughes and the EP ‘Devils Door’.
Having grown up exposed to artists such as Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’day, Louis Jordan, Baden Powell and Jobim, the move towards Jazz and Brazilian music was a ‘natural transition’ aided by the influences such as Amy Winehouse, Norah Jones and Esperanza Spalding.
