Anna is performing her favourites from the jazz and American songbook canon from the 30’s and 40’s originally sung by the greats, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Billy Holiday. She delivers these with a compelling vocal emotional and soulful integrity that has been engaging audiences around the world since the beginning of her career.

His songs have been recorded by jazz singers China Moses, Mina Agossi, Sandra Nkake, Liane Carroll, Allan Harris, Alexia Gardner and Alexander Stewart, among others. His show ‘Cafe Society Swing’ has enjoyed several theatre runs in London and one in New York, where he received the New York Times ‘Critic’s Pick’.
