The Hampstead Jazz Club is excited to bring you a fusion of Jazz/Reggae/Calypso in the form of The Small Island Trio!
The Small Island Quartet is an exciting new group, put together & fronted by the multi-talented jazz singer, Shireen Francis. What makes this group so unique, is the way that jazz music is fused seamlessly with Caribbean musical forms like Reggae & Calypso music, which creates an unusual hybrid that is interesting to listen to and yet very accessible.
During her 25-year career, Shireen has performed at top international venues and festivals, including Ronnie Scott’s, Royal Festival Hall, Royal Albert Hall, 606 Club, The Hideaway- Streatham, and Pizza Express Dean Street. She has performed along with acclaimed artists such as John Etheridge, Jim Mullen, Ciyo Brown, Benny Green, Humphrey Lyttleton, Mark Murphy, Anita Wardell and Billy Ocean.
Once described as a cross between Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin and Shirley Bassey, Shireen never fails to impress taking you on an immersive and heartfelt journey through jazz, blues and gospel with just a touch of her Caribbean roots.
