BlueNefertiti's style is a direct reflection of her vast influences in music...the eloquence of Edith Piaf, Miriam Makeba, Abbey Lincoln, and Minnie Ripperton; the sophistication of Joao Gilberto; the vocal acrobatics of Bobby McFerrin; and the dynamic duality of Louis Armstrong & Ella Fitzgerald.

She began singing professionally with her older sister in France during the mid 1990's; later forming the internationally renowned singing duo Les Nubians. After 10 years in the business, a myriad of encounters, recordings and awards, she is now outwardly expressing her inner workings... a cabaret style performance project aptly named Paris@Night.

With her sensual stage presence she lures you into her world of experimental frequencies… Electronic, Dub, Soul, House, Hip Hop, and then… with the sparkle in her eye… she subtly invites you to sink into your seats and travel through time and space to the era of great Jazz Standards and French Realism.

The show is an unconventional mélange of ingenious originals and innovative renditions of Edith Piaf, Nina Simone, Josephine Baker, Miriam Makeba, Dave Brubeck... and at any given moment, an unexpected guest may grace the stage with an impromptu display of their unique talents.

Welcome to Paris@Night - BlueNefertiti's Ek'lectric Cabaret- where the Blues of past loves mingle with the Pink and Gold of life's joys… the intensity of an eternal glimpse… the memory of a sacred moment… and the urge of colourful souls calling out for LOVE…
