With an incredibly soulful and powerful voice, Nancy is a genuine Soul Diva. Born in Surabaya, Java, she is becoming well known as one of the best Indonesian Soul and Jazz singers of the modern era. A huge fan of Aretha Franklin, Etta james and Ella Fitzgerald. Nancy realized her talent in singing at a very young age, as a gospel singer in her church. She sings with true emotion and power, sending shivers down the spine and setting fire to the soul, drawing from a wide range of classic Jazz standards, as well as a number of real soul songs and popular soulful tunes from a more current repertoire. Nancy is usually accompanied by Jeko Fauzy, one of the most renowned Jazz guitarists on the island who is well known for his warm acoustic sound and unique interpretations and arrangements. With a never- ending string of outstanding performances behind her, Nancy is destined to become an international star, although you can catch Nancy singing regularly at some of Bali’s most popular live music destinations.
