7 NIGHTS A WEEK
This local diva has just released her latest studio album titled ‘Question Mark’. There’s no question whatsoever about her vocal talent. Since the late eighties Farida has contributed to various musical outfits with her soulful voice.
Her style shifts from neo-soul to jazz-compositions. Chaka Khan, Jill Scott and Tina Turner resonate clearly in her repertoire, along with instrumental acrobatics that bring to mind Marcus Miller and Herbie Hancock. She’ll not only bring her own material to the stage, there will also be some very originally interpreted covers.
Even though she can boast an international sound and allure, Miss Merville never hides her Amsterdam pride. And above all, she’s always a lady.
