Alicia Saldenha

ALICIA SALDENHA (pronounced sal-dáy-nya) was born in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. She started singing and dancing from early childhood, then toured the Caribbean and the United States as a teenager in several musical productions.

While attending university in the United Kingdom, Alicia quickly fell in love with jazz and changed her musical direction. Alicia has since performed throughout Europe and Japan, with appearances at the Blue Note, Osaka, the Nice Jazz Festival, France, with George Clinton and the P-Funks, as well as at the Umbria Jazz Festival, Italy. She has also shared the stage with legendary jazz steel drummer, Othello Molineaux, during his Japan tours.

”Beautiful voice! Beautiful girl! Simply beautiful!” (Round About Jazz Band)

“You sound excellent!” (Jon Hammond - organist)

““Ooh Boy” has a sweetly romantic quality, and Saldenha favors a sweet vocal style that makes this type of song perfect for her.” (Alex Henderson - ReviewYou.com)

“One thing that Saldenha is good at is hitting the high notes, and when she does that, she can sound a bit like Deniece Williams (a well known R&B singer who was big in the late 1970s and 1980s and enjoyed some major hits back then).” (Alex Henderson - ReviewYou.com)
