Live from Harlem – JFA Presents: Ghanniyya Green

A singer’s singer and a listener’s delight, vocalist Ghanniyya Green has appeared at the Blue Note, The Village Gate, Dangerfield’s, The Cotton Club, Birdland and Sardi’s. Accomplished in radio, television, film and theatre, she has also performed in France and Japan. Winner of the 1999 Dakota Staton Award for most promising Jazz vocalist, The American Review of Jazz and Blues has said Ghanniyya “…..sings with a Diva’s sense of high drama,” and New York Perspectives says she “packs emotional theatrical vignettes into her stylized jazz singing.”

This event will stream on the Jazz Foundation and Jazz Museum Facebook pages and the Museum YouTube Channel.

This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and by the Howard Gilman Foundation.
