Vanisha is renowned in New York's music scene for her jazz and blues finesse. This California native followed her passion for jazz and its culture to the Big Apple. Inspired by legends such as Nina Simone, Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sarah Vaughan, Vanisha "has curated her own sound and has performed on some of New York’s best stages."

This concert is supported by:
Planetary Music Movement is a concert series that guides Groupmuse to grow beyond the historical dominance of European ethnocentrism within the classical music tradition, by celebrating historical and contemporary musical traditions of the planet, particularly and imminently through the inclusion and celebration of works by artists of African descent.

MusicTalks is on a mission to enable audiences to connect with music in refreshing ways through intimate concerts featuring eclectic music genres with New York's finest artists. It aims to break down the barriers between musicians and audiences by infusing engaging and interactive conversation into the concert experience.
