Acclaimed jazz singer Gabrielle Ducomble brings her inimitable blend of French chanson, tango and bossa to Cadogan Hall for an afternoon of unforgettable music-making.

This new show features original songs from her latest album, Across the Bridge, interspersed with her own unique takes on classic chansons by Piaf, Legrand, Brel and Piazzolla.

Influenced by travel and timeless storytelling, Gabrielle takes you on a rich musical journey from the Indonesian rainforest to partying Brazil and the streets of Paris, mixing samba, waltz, hot club-style jazz and African rhythm.
Played by an authentic band featuring guitar and violin, expect an evening of beautiful melody, inspired musicianship and infectious joie de vivre.

‘Gabrielle is gifted with an irresistible voice’ (All About Jazz)

‘Ducomble’s pure-toned voice, impeccable phrasing… incantatory’ (Jazzwise)
