ALICIA SALDENHA
About Me
Artist Bio

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 performed with legendary jazz steel drummer, Othello Molineaux, during his Japan tours.

As a soul singer-songwriter and bandleader, Alicia Saldenha performs with her band throughout Japan. The shows are dynamic, featuring original as well as classic soul, jazz, funk and reggae.

She increasingly collaborates with top Japanese and international artists, such as Japan's nu jazz band, indigo jam unit, and legendary funk bassist and founding member of the Headhunters, Paul Jackson.

In fact, Alicia and indigo jam unit recently collaborated on an album, "Rose," due to be released on September 2, 2011. It features their interpretations of rare 1970s jazz funk tunes by artists such as Nina Simone, Doug Carne and Vince Andrews.

Alicia Saldenha is also a scholar and an educator, having obtained a Doctorate (PhD) in Culture and Civilization Sciences from Kobe University. She is currently working on her debut album of funky-soul originals, recorded in New York City with some of the finest musicians, set for release late 2011. Stay tuned!
