Multi award winning songbird, ex The Hottentots, PARISSA BOUAS is shut-the-front-door DYNAMITE! Like a blend of Carmen Miranda, Billy Holiday and Madeleine Peyroux but completely herself at the same time. Seduced at an early age by the passion and rhythms of Latin America and Africa, these influences come through in her songwriting. Her sultry, seductive vocals and moody, Gypsy Jazz originals are juxtaposed with sublime Brazilian inspired melodies and swing those hips Calypso tunes.
Parissa sings and accompanies herself on guitar, ukulele & percussion. She is supported by renowned Sydney Jazz pianist & composer, Sean Mackenzie, who also shines on kalimba and stomp box and Thierry Fossemalle on Double Bass.
