PARIS CAT DEBUT – NOT TO BE MISSED…
Rachel Delgado is a singer and songwriter of Jazz, NuJazz and Latin/Soul music.
Rachel began her singing career in Australia, performing with pianist John Foreman (Music Director for ‘The Schools Spectacular’) and for jazz engagements in Sydney.
Subsequently, Rachel moved to Chile where she was a recording artist for EMI Records (Chile). EMI Chile released two of her albums, one of which was also released in Spain. Rachel’s song ‘Quiero’ went to the top of the Charts in both Chile and Spain.
Rachel was praised as “Best Female Singer” by the Chilean Associated Press, and was declared “Best New Artist” by the Chilean Chamber of Commerce in Miami, USA. Rachel has shared the stage with Mariah Carey, Shakira and with Peabo Bryson in a tribute to Latin America’s best-known composer and lyricist Armando Manzanero on America’s most popular Latin American television show ‘Sabado Gigante’.
Returning to Australia, Rachel is now based in Sydney and is involved in various live and recording projects. A regular member of Sydney band, Nothin but Jam, Rachel is also collaborating with leading musicians on the Australian Jazz scene.
Rachel will present songs from her South American albums, encompassing her latin heritage, in English and Spanish, from bossanovas to sultry Spanish boleros.
‘Pack Your Memories’ and ‘ I Don’t Want To Know’ from her self-titled album ‘Rachel’ are luscious examples of her love of Blues and Parisian inspired Tango. She will also perform original Latin Jazz compositions including her chart topping ‘Quiero’ (I Want To) ‘A Veces (Sometimes)’, and ‘Sweet Butterfly’. Echoes of Billie Holiday are present in Rachel’s storytelling, and her soulful vocals will play on your heartstrings, documenting tales of Life in Love along her musical journey.
For this exclusive Paris Cat performance, Rachel Delgado teams up with musical partners, pianist Alexander Nettelbeck, bassist Rene Tessmer and drummer Keith Pereira.
