Nana Simopoulos

Internationally Acclaimed 
Guitarist/Singer/Composer Nana Simopoulos at Drom
 
 

Nana Simopoulos, the internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer and educator, is set to perform at Drom New York on May 9th, 2019. 

She will be performing pieces from her latest album:  Skins which features eight Simopoulos originals, brilliantly performed by a band of world-class jazz musicians and first-class world musicians, including saxophonist Dave Liebman, Caryn Heilman, Todd Isler and Mary Ann McSweeney. Nana’s music draws from sources and influences spanning centuries and the globe, with the composer referencing in her music various cultures and mystic poetry. 

The artist is a musical shape shifter who has explored diverse forms of expression with sound, including musical theater, film scores, and dance scores for a range of styles including ballet and modern dance, as well as accompaniment for spoken word and poetry.  She is deeply immersed in the music of India, Greece, South America, Africa, and Asia and known for putting her own distinctive stamp on each performance and composition.  Simopoulos has played with jazz legends including Don Cherry, Charlie Haden, and Billy Higgins; world music icon Nana Vasconcelos; and appeared with the New York City Opera and RAI Symphony Orchestra. She’s performed in venues from the intimate Café Sabarsky to the imposing Cathedral of Saint John the Divine to the open-air Montreux Jazz Festival.
