Orisha ‘sounds’ off at Redbones
IN her second appearance at Redbones Blues Café in St Andrew in a matter of days, Norwegian singer Orisha Sound was again in good nick.
The Los Angeles-based artiste (who is of Scandinavian/Slavic heritage), showed her vocal prowess as well as her guitar and violin skills.
Her rendition of Sunshine Lady, a song she recorded and did during her July 11 performance with Wayne Daniel, was first-rate.
Opening with One More Night, Orisha Sound was also a hit with Rewind and a cover of Adele's Someone Like You. She showed her versatility by playing violin on Shok It and guitar on Closer.
"I started with singing and playing the violin and I kept on adding different instruments for the different ways I can express myself. I wanted to be very universal," she told the Jamaica Observer.
Orisha Sound (Orisha Pelzer) was classically trained at the St Petersburg Conservatory in Russia. The 25-year-old has been recording in Jamaica since early last year.
She has also recorded with Sizzla (Embrace It) and is currently building a recording studio called Black and Yellow Entertainment in St Andrew.
