Happening on a weekly basis, The Jazz Garden sessions will delight music lovers until the start of April, and on February 28, the series will host the American Queen of Soul and Gospel, Chanda Rule.
For Chanda, singing was a dream realized in schoolgirl chorus at church. Born in between the off beats, and bump and grind of the Disco/Funk-Era in the Windy City, Chanda began weaving stories through song, humming melodies, and bending words as a child. A self-proclaimed "childhood shower singing sensation", music was her secret solace.
From small towns to international venues and musical theatre and festivals, Chanda embarked on a journey awed by the power of music that has taken her from small towns in Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana, to international venues in Amsterdam, Berlin, and Moscow.
Awed by the power of music, Chanda proclaims "There is something about rhythm and melody that can always find a smile, throw a head back with laughter, or even tears… It transcends language and breaks through cultural and racial barriers."
At The Jazz Garden on February 28, Chanda will be supported by the trio African band “De Cruz” to open the stage for Chanda Rule. Expect a vibrant Jazz with Afrocentric vibes and rhythms to entice the audience.
