Sarah Lenka

She would never do anything like everyone else, even less joining the ranks. This is the reason why Sarah sings Bessie. With her puzzling voice, and her sensibility, Sarah Lenka restores without difficulty, all the depth of Bessie Smith’s songs, talking about human condition, love, desire, all those themes remaining ageless. Leading an original formation with a trumpet, a double bass and two guitars, she gives this repertoire the color of the Americana, with a touch of folk/pop and blues and jazz roots.
