"There is a sort of positive melancholy in Germana’s vocal performance, you hear a link to the tradition yet at the same time it’s fresh and forward facing." Simone Gubbiotti, Jazz in Europe
“...powerful and refreshing vocal.” - Elliot Marlow-Stevens, Jazz Journal
Recorded in May 2023, “Primary Colours” is the second studio album by Italian London-based singer and storyteller Germana Stella La Sorsa.
The album contains 7 original compositions reflecting La Sorsa's musical influences - such as Gretchen Parlato, Bobby McFerrin and Jeff Buckley - and drawing upon her eclectic background and skilful voice, as well as the band’s versatility, to create something fresh, new and unexpected.
The music explores drum’n’bass grooves, latin influences and free improvisation.
“Primary Colours” is a concept album that draws parallels between the art of colour and musical narration.
It’s about how base human feelings and life experiences interconnect and interact with each other - ultimately leading to life changes - just like primary colours and shades combine themselves, creating new tones.
Supported by Help Musicians, “Primary Colours” is released by 33 Jazz Records and distributed by The Orchard, on the 26th of January 2024.
