Recently praised in the New York Times for her "gorgeously chesty ruminations" by music critic Steve Smith, "stunning" (New York Magazine) vocalist and innovative composer Imani Uzuri returns to the Blue Note to perform songs from her new acclaimed album, The Gypsy Diaries, which draws on her rural Southern roots as well as influences ranging from Sufi devotionals to Romany laments.



Uzuri will be joined by a stellar group of musicians who are all featured on the album, including Marika Hughes (cello), Kaoru Watanabe (Japanese shinobue flute, western flute), Todd Isler (world percussion), album co-producer Christian Ver Halen (acoustic guitar), and Neel Murgai (sitar, daf).

Imani Uzuri's The Gypsy Diaries has been praised by fans and critics alike, from Ebony to All About Jazz to Time Out New York. Carol Cooper of the Village Voice raves, "With a voice that would sound equally at home on an opera stage or a disco 12-inch, Uzuri is a constant surprise on record, seamlessly combining jazz, classical, country and blues motifs into highly personalized compositions."


Uzuri says “Ultimately, this album is about finding one's place through the traveling, the communion, the loneliness, victories, sadness, losses, euphorias, revelations, transformations coming to understand that we are always here: home."
