Flower power for Barn show

Weekend Post (South Africa) - - Arts & Entertainment -

Jazz singer-song­writer Mar­iloe Booy­sen will per­form at the PE Opera House’s next Jazz’Afro Sun­days ses­sion on Sun­day at the Barn The­atre.

Booy­sen, af­fec­tion­ately known as That Flower Lady, is a dy­namic singer, song­writer and ac­tress who grad­u­ated with a BA in drama from the Univer­sity of Pre­to­ria.

“Sim­ple, re­flec­tive, pause-for-thought and prophetic words” is how she de­scribes her style.

Booy­sen’s sound is a hy­brid of sev­eral gen­res such as RnB and soul, with great in­flu­ences of jazz. She calls the genre “Zazzo”, a word cre­ated to de­scribe her dis­tinc­tive sounds and melodies.

Booy­sen is also the brains be­hind Zazzo En­ter­tain­ment, which has pro­duced the Open Mic show on Port El­iz­a­beth tele­vi­sion sta­tion Bay TV.

She com­pleted cour­ses in clas­si­cal train­ing and broad­cast­ing at Mont­gomery Col­lege in the US.

Af­ter re­leas­ing her first sin­gle with US pro­ducer Trey An­dre, she com­peted in the Bama Awards in 2012 and won the best fe­male vo­cal­ist cat­e­gory in Port El­iz­a­beth.

The Barn show will be at 5pm and tick­ets are R70 (R50 for pen­sion­ers). Seat­ing is lim­ited.
