Upcoming Borneo Jazz audience to be treated to performance by Tangora




KUCHING: The audience at the upcoming Borneo Jazz 2012 in Miri will get to see the sensational Tangora perform.

Singer, songwriter Tangora mixes a heady cocktail of influences.

She comes from a French — Italian background and is heavily immersed in the sounds of the Caribbean and afro-Latin jazz.

Her songs in Creole, English, Latin and French, are delivered in her sultry and sensual voice. And she is backed by an enviable Who’s Who rhythm section of Eric Vincenot, Tony Rabeson and Jonathan Jurion.

Tangora has made music her banner, her way of life. Her lyrics are odes to love, hymns to interbreeding, celebrations of life, delicate and sensual ballads, poignant messages in a mosaic of colours that carry the soul of intermingling.

“She juggles with notes as well as with words … emotion, mellowness, intensity, she shares with her accomplices and brilliant musicians who form the main part of her group.

“Borneo Jazz 2012 main shows take place in Miri from May 11 to 12. Be sure not to miss Tangora from the land of romance and seven other international bands performing near home,” a spokesman for the festival said in a press release.

Promotional tickets at 50 per cent discount are still available online until March 31. Special tickets for the Opening Nights dinner and show are also available now for sale.
