PARISSA BOUAS – PRESS RELEASE 14.7.19
Multi award winning, internationally renowned chanteuse, PARISSA BOUAS, is shut-the-front-door DYNAMITE! A blend of Carmen Miranda, Billy Holiday and Madeleine Peyroux yet completely herself.
PARISSA has won a legion of fans for her performances around the world with Australia’s definitive coffee house couple, The Hottentots, at festivals with Calyspo darlings The Bella Fontes, dance band Diaspora Latina, and with her long-awaited solo EP ‘The Full Force of the Wind’, which won SONG OF THE YEAR, BEST JAZZ SONG and BEST WORLD MUSIC at the Dolphin Music Awards.
“Parissa … immediately engages by being blessed with a voice that has timbral overlaps with Billie Holiday’s. More significantly she shines the charm off that voice on some exceptional self-penned songs” JOHN SHAND, Sydney Morning Herald
Last time she played in Byron PARISSA brought ‘Feel the Manouche’ as her band. This time she is bringing her new band, the ‘World Citizens’, a top notch list of who’s who musicians, a super mix of young guns and legends: Greg Lyon (Crossfire), James Ross (Andrea Soler), James Pattugalan (Utugun Percussion), Carl Cleves (Hottentots) and some very special guests… so it’s certainly going to groove!!! Expect an irresistible unique mix of jazzy + pop + world music… moving from deliciously, sensuous slow tunes in the first set to put on your dancing shoes in the 2nd!!!
Opening acts ~ wonderful up and coming singing talent!!!
