“I was drawn to the open harmonies of jazz. That's because I like surprises” – Sissy Castrogiovanni

Sissy Castrogiovanni is a Sicilian jazz award-winning singer, composer, producer, and Berklee College of Music professor. Based in New England, and musically rooted in her native island Sicily, her arrangements and compositions are an attractive synthesis of musical cultures. Sissy’s music is an amalgamation of her Sicilian and Mediterranean influences, earthy African rhythms, tribal voices and post-bop Jazz harmonies. With her unique way of bridging contemporary Jazz with Sicilian idioms, Sissy’s music finds its niche between the vast sea of jazz and world music.

With her expressive and emotional voice that’s been praised for its rare vocal extension, vocal control, and versatility by influential publications such as Jazziz Magazine, WNPR and Downbeat Magazine, Castrogiovanni’s soulful and powerful sound lets us discover a new universe, where her extremely rich melodies become soundscapes that transport us immediately into a world full of life and art.

Sissy tours nationally and internationally and has collaborated with numerous distinguished musicians including legendary singer Bobby McFerrin and Latin-Grammy winning producer Javier Limon, Jack DeJohnette, and Patrice Rushen, to name a few.

Join us for a concert that promises to be a memorable and unforgettable musical experience, a night full of colors, rhythms, and emotions brought together by the unique fusion of contemporary jazz and traditional Sicilian music.
