“Mama Alto is an exceptionally talented singer, who makes the question as to whether it is a woman or a man singing obsolete. It is clearly an angel.” (The Conversation).
Mama Alto is a gender transcendent diva, cabaret artiste, jazz singer & community activist. She is a trans femme person of colour who works with the radical potential of storytelling, strength in softness & power in vulnerability. Fierce, femme & fabulous, she has been lauded as “divine” (Havana Tribune, Cuba), “near flawless” (The Age), and “a knockout” (The Herald Sun). Drawing on legacies of vintage torch singers & her own identity as a queer person of colour, Mama Alto embraces perceived difference, reclaims narratives of othering, empowers the marginalised, defies the normative & rejoices in the sublime.
