In a long black dress, high heels and sparkling jewelry, her right hand balanced on the nook of a grand piano, her left wrapped around a microphone, Laka’s a picture of the sleekest of west end beauties. Her subject on this start of Valentine’s weekend? The story and the glory of love. Her listeners will be at cabaret tables, with cocktails.
With all of its joy and all of its pain, its twists and turns and ups and downs, there has never been a subject of song as remotely popular as love. Laka sings, especially this year, to the longing for connection - and reconnection - in all of our hearts. She picks the songs of Anita Baker, Sade, Al Green and Frank Sinatra (and others) to tie the narrative together.
Accompanied by Corey Patterson on piano.
