Sponsored by the Black Rock Coalition, the 17 piece all female orchestra under the musical direction of Tamar Kali  returned to France to play three sold out shows.  This was a special experience as we were in the region where Nina spent her time.  It was beautiful.  We stayed in two fully furnished lodgings with a full kitchen on a arts complex in Chateauvallon.  Besides the fantastic shows, I really enjoyed cooking and spending time with the other women whom I don’t get to see too often in NYC because of our busy schedules..  Thankyou Chateauvallon, Sainte Maxime, and Martigues.  BIG Thankyou also to LaRonda Davis, Laurent, Sandra, Jaco, Christian and everyone else who made our stay and shows so fantastic!

Viva Nina Simone!

Good Times!

Here are some out takes from soundchecks and shows:
