I recently got to know Laura Campisi, a wonderful musician from Palermo, who now lives in New York. Laura is an award winning songwriter and jazz singer. She performs a wide range of music: jazz, folk, r&b and traditional Sicilian music.
On Monday, June 13, Laura will be performing Italian Jazz at Zinc Bar in the West Village. This particular show is about creating abridge between contemporary Italy and the United States.
Laura and I recently sat down for a chat about music, inspiration and her current projects.
