Event Details

Akina McKenzie, the Blueswoman from the cold mountains of Switzerland returns to the place she was born – America. Her voice has been compared with Nina Simone and her guitar skills with legends like John Lee Hooker and Robert Johnson. Not only does she play the blues, but also nostalgic jazz songs reminiscent of the 40s and eerie folksongs with influences from classical music… Her early childhood roots laying in Memphis, one can say, blues have always been a part of her life. In the land of the mountains far across the ocean they say – she takes the blues and she cooks with it.
