Celebrating Nina Simone

Featuring Her Award Winning Daughter Lisa Simone

Arts Centre Melbourne, Hamer Hall

“I made a pledge to my mother when she passed away to make sure she would be remembered in the way that she deserved.” – Lisa Simone

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life…and here’s a reason to feel good.

For the first time ever, award-winning actress and Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist, Lisa Simone, will grace Australian stages to honour her mother’s legacy.

Blessed with the same deep velvet voice as her inimitable mother, jazz legend Nina Simone, Lisa Simone will bring the Simone repertoire to life in a lushly orchestrated and deeply personal main-stage performance accompanied by a swingin’ all-star big band.

Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to hear the breadth and depth of the Nina Simone repertoire including classics like ‘My Baby Just Cares for Me’, ‘Feelin’ Good’, ‘Black Is the Colour’, ‘Love Me or Leave Me’ and more performed by her very own daughter as part of the Melbourne International Jazz Festival.


Presented in partnership with 4Di Touring.
