London – Eleonora Damizia live in concert at the Crazy Coqs Club in Soho. A spectacular multilingual music journey through cultures. On Saturday 24th of October 2015, I had the pleasure of watching a faboulous multilingual concert at the Crazy Coqs performance venue, in Soho, London.
My immediate thought was that writing an article about that show should be a must.
I am talking about the Eleonora Damizia’s concert, which is conceived as an emotional cabaret and jazz music journey through different cultures (American, Italian, Brasilian, French, Russian) with swing, walzer, tango, bossanova, samba, and ballad rhythms.
Eleonora is an exceptional Multilingual singer and songwriter based in London. After several TV appearances on Rai 2 tv, she moved from Rome to the Uk, rapidly putting her sophisticated mediterrenean stamp on the London music scene. If I had to choose one word to describe her show, “Breathtaking” would be it.
The singer has indeed got the ability of deeply connecting with the audience, creating a beautiful exchange of emotions.
Her Concert has been such a huge success, with a full house and exceptional musicians; the talented Simon Morris on guitar and Nick Lenner Webster on double bass, who accompanied Eleonora during the whole show.
ED’s voice is often compared to the ones of the greatest divas of the past.
Eleonora’s vocal style could be indeed described as a blend amongst the operatic Jazz style of Sarah Vaughan, the emotional depth and soulfness of Eva Cassidy and the sultry tone of Julie London. Also, her theatrical stage presence reminds me the one of the incredible Belgian-Canadian artist Lara Fabian.
Neverthless, Eleonora’s timbre cannot be confused with the one of anyone else, and it is her distinctive signature.
After her first notes the listeners seemed mesmerised by her energy, contemplating in silent awe the most phenomenal of her attributes, her voice.
With a luscious and nuanced timbre, she brings an operatic splendour to her performances of popular standards. Her style is jazz, blues, pop, folk, opera.
She definitely loves music in its whole and she brings together all the rhythms that she likes in a unique show. Moreover, during her concert she magistrally interpreted the most famous classics of the Italian and French music, with a unique emotional interpretation of the Edith Piaf hit, “je ne regrette rien”, and a beautiful rendition of the Italian masterpiece “Torna a surriento”.
ED’s concert was certainly a unique experience, making it unmissable in my opinion.
I have great expectations that her future concerts will be sold out just as fast as this one was last Saturday, at the crazy Coqs.
