Macha Gharibian

Macha Gharibian is an exquisite pianist, singer, composer and producer of her own albums who has immersed herself in the world of New York jazz to create her own musical universe: a natural blend of all her influences. Armenian in origin, Parisian at heart and a New Yorker by adoption, she has forged her own personal, modern and diverse urban style somewhere between oriental jazz, neoclassical music and experimental pop. When her voice soars over her atmospheric piano playing, its intensity identifies her as one of the truly natural vocalists, a highly selective club that includes singers like Nina Simone, Jeanne Lee and Mélissa Laveaux. Like a series of self-portraits, the tracks on her third album, Joy Ascension (2020), form the manifesto of an independent woman and an artist of her time.
