Rita di Ghent

“The coolest jazz diva on the scene” (Ottawa X-press)“…di Ghent is in the mold-breaking business, and has come up with a style all of her own called “sprawl….sharp, sassy, funky and even fashionable, di Ghent’s performance demonstrates that she can sing jazz in the traditional sense while also bringing her own more modern lyrical and vocal skills to the party. Several of her own songs, which focus on North American street life, are excellent, particularly 20 Dollar Ring, a tale of a poverty-stricken girl murdered for a worthless piece of jewelry, and the witty Signs of Spring in My Neighbourhood. Perhaps the high point of the show, however, was a radical re-invention of Bob Dylan’s Just Like a Woman…extraordinarily compelling.” (South China Morning Post)
