Awards

- Nominated, Grand Prix de Jazz, Montreal International Jazz Festival 2002 - Runner-up, Young jazz vocalist of the year award, UK, 2001
”Diane Nalini has the voice, the phrasing, confidence, clarity and control to make a tune her own and turn it into a nuanced thing of beauty.” - Irwin Block, The Montreal Gazette

“'After dusk' is a gorgeous collection of standards sung with quiet, enunciated power.” - Time Out Magazine, London, UK

“Seriously gifted. Diane Nalini is spoilt for talent.” - The Sunday Times, South Africa

“Rendering songbook standards as well as French chanson, Brazilian classics, her own compositions, and settings of poems by Shakespeare and Tennyson, Nalini consistently displays bell-clear tone, meticulous enunciation, playfulness and subtle swing.” - Ian McGillis, The Globe and Mail, Canada

“I was completely overwhelmed by the eloquence and limpidity of her voice. Whether interpreting American Jazz songbook giants, the continental chanson tradition, Brazilian bossa nova (new wave) music, or her original compositions, a common trait was evident: she captivates her audiences.” - Charles Mifsud, The Sunday Times, Malta

“Mellifluous contralto, emotively nuanced, rhythmically pliable, seductively melodic, phrases like back in the day (Billie, Ella, and Carmen). Chile could sang.” - Tom Terrell, All About Jazz
