Finley Quaye, Duke Ellington’s godson, live in Bucharest

The Bucharest audience will be granted the opportunity to enjoy live a jazz concert by Finley Quaye, presently on an European acoustic tour intended to be a chance to “bring the mountain to Mohamed, to bring the music closer to the audience”, as Finley Quaye puts it. The tour promises to be a special experience for music fans, offered a chance to enjoy the artist’s creations, but for him as well.

“The concert will be an eclectic mix in an intimate atmosphere, a journey through the artist’s repertoire starting from his debut and up to the present”, organizers announced.
In 1997, the artist won a Brit Award for his album Maverick a Strike, and hits such as Sunday Shinning and Even after all.

The versatility and unmistakable sound, as well as music influences starting with Duke Ellington (who was also his godfather), up to Ronnie Scott and Buddy Rich, helped Finley Quaye to work with major artists of the music industry. Among the artists he had worked with, there are Beth Orton, William Orbit, Julian Marley, Marlon Bois, Amy Winehouse, The Stereo MC’s and many more.

At the time being, Finley left his studio to go on the European tour, kicked off by the end of 2015 and due to be held until 2016.
