When the singing duo "Rezá Azul" perform, they stir up an experience of what it feels like when 2 attuned artists connect into an instant recognition of One Love. These two gifted singers, Raz Kennedy from Southern California and Teresa Kali from Southern Sweden, evoke a power in their voices that transcends space, time, race, age and culture. Like 2 stars of a Blue Straggler, these souls collide and merge, becoming an even greater Light that shines brigher than the sum of its parts. Igniting this special Light wherever they go, their songs speak of the deep soul connection that these two share.
Rezá Azul's repertoire consists of an eclectic tapestry of musical styles fusing jazz, rock, indigenous chants, R&B, performance art, gypsy music and improvisation. Teresa's musical background is steeped in gospel, pop & R&B with influences from singers such as Miriam Makeba, Randy Crawford, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Mary J Blige & Yasmin Levy. When coupled with Raz' influences from jazz (Eddie Jefferson & Bobby McFerrin), Rock (Jimi Hendrix & Bayeté), R&B (Smokey Robinson & Bobby Womack), pop (Frankie Valli & The Stylistics) and world music (Salif Keita), these two offer to anyone who is listening an opportunity to be inspired, reflective, enlightened & healed.
