Soul Provider 

When: Thu., April 30 2015
Jazz singer Ester Rada was born in Ethiopia but grew up in a highly religious Jewish family in Israel. As a result, her music, which she’s dubbed Ethio-Jazz, draws from funk, soul and R&B. Last year, on the heels of her first self-written and composed solo EP Life Happens, which was produced by Israeli producers Kuti (Kutiman/Thru-You) and Sabbo (Soulico), she delivered her self-titled debut. It’s an intoxicating blend of different styles and even draws upon reggae. Rada cites early 20th century “soul power women” such as Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin as influences. She performs tonight at 7:30 at the Hanna Theatre. Tickets are $20 to $25. (Niesel)
