Low-Fi Backstage with Nana Rashid
One wintery Friday evening Ann Colleen and her husband let us into their lovely home to share their passion for music with others. This evening they bestowed their living room to the fantastic Nana Rashid. Nana is an exceptional musician. Her spine-tingling storytelling combined with her powerful and authentic voice kept everyone on the edge of their seats. All of us were attentively listening to every word Nana sang. In her songs she took us on a journey and showed us the world through her eyes. Her performance created a strong connection with the audience, touching our hearts and souls.
Nana has always been an eager listener of music, but she never could have imagined that she would be able to do music herself. But then, at 18 years old, she decided to attend singing lessons to pursue her passion and she never looked back.
Nana, as a person and as an artist, stands hard on authenticity and admires everyone who does the same. She draws inspiration from many, for example Nina Simon or Melanie de Basio. Nana is known as a jazz singer with strong and raw songs. “I have always mixed genres and found genres more limiting than rewarding. I guess that’s why I ended up near jazz, a “genre” or rather a community where we are allowed to improvise and crossover.” she admits. In the future, the accomplished artist would love to bring her music to more people who might need it. She wants to write songs that will touch every single fiber in our bodies.
Nana Rashid came upon Low-Fi Concerts when a member of the community invited her to play a concert. She signed up and discovered that it is really rewarding to play these kinds of concerts where people are in a more cozy and relaxed setting of someone’s home. “It brings us all a little closer around the music.” she shares.
