Harlem Jazz Series - Gino Sitson

  • Greater Calvary Baptist Church 43-55 West Street New York, NY 10027 USA (map)

Award-winning, New York-based vocal virtuoso, Gino Sitson is from the Cameroon, Central Africa. He and his siblings were introduced to blues, jazz and African traditional music early in life. Mr. Sitson is a pioneer of a new generation of multi-culturally influenced African musicians; his daring musical projects combine in a most innovative way jazz, gospel, blues and traditional African polyphonies, polyrhythms and melodies. By freely combining his trademark vocal acrobatics with a breathtakingly creative command of oral and body percussions and miscellaneous effects, Mr. Sitson forges an eloquent vocabulary capable of communicating far beyond any limits of language or custom. Gino Sitson's four-octave vocal range plus his skills as a composer and arranger put him in high demand.
