The Singing Gardner of Riverside Park unleashes her first jazzical music video showing all manner of artistic activity, clearly not enough hours in the day. The almost 200 year old Italian Art Song sounds as fresh and new now as ever in the 21st century with this Jobim/Seregio Mendez sensibility. Catch her at The Consumer Electronic Show January 6-9.2011 performing & recording live for 3 days in Las Vegas.

Summertime & the Livin Ain’t Easy Napua Davoy & Andrei Kondakov
During our first tour of Russia 13 years ago performing George & Ira Gershwin’s Summertime from Porgy & Bess,
pianist/composer Andrei Kondakov introduced Napua Davoy to jazz enthusiasts all over Russia. Someone wrote that Davoy should bring the Russian people into a Brave Cool World! Presumptuous at best – but what a GREAT IDEA. To be BRAVE & to live in a COOL WORLD.
Composer/Performer Napua Davoy playing her Overture of Stella Rising. If you’re lucky enough to be in Hawaii in February 2011, you can see the show live at the Kumu Kahua Theatre, 46 Merchant Street in the heart of Honolulu on February 7th & 8th. If you’re not that fortunate, you can catch Ms.Davoy’s Jazzical Diva Tour in Las Vegas next year from January 6th – 9th at The Consumer Electronic Show at The Flamingo Hotel. Her work bristles with freshness and a deep realization of the jazz and classical musical forms. She truly is a 21st Century artist!
