Brigitte Beraha

Profile

“Most musicianly singer Brigitte Beraha” performs as both ‘sideman’ and as a leader in an ever-expanding range of projects, from straight ahead jazz – singing jazz standard songs with lyrics, to more contemporary outlets – using her voice as an instrument.

Brigitte is now recognized as one of the most versatile and exciting vocalists on the UK jazz scene. As well as performing and recording with many jazz legends, including Kenny Wheeler, Chris Laurence, Paul Clarvis, Stuart Hall, Martin France, John Parricelli, Bobby Wellins and Henry Lowther she is closely involved in the work of the new generation of jazz musicians and in particular the Loop and E17 jazz collectives. Drawing comparisons with such luminaries as Norma Winstone, Flora Purim and Tania Maria, she has forged her own, very individual voice. With five albums to her credit, her latest album with Babelfish ‘Chasing Rainbows’ has received rave reviews.

An experienced educator, Brigitte leads jazz workshops and teaches at The Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance and the Welsh College of Music & Drama. She has performed and led workshops in the United States, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland, Turkey, Nepal and the UK.
