Farida Nelson is a charismatic multi-instrumentalist hailing from Azerbaijan (she is also part Ukrainian). She earned her MA in Piano Performance from Baku Music Academy in Azerbaijan, and for a decade she was the first call female bassist and chief songwriter for the #1 rock band, Unformal, and pop-duo, Milk & Kisses (each group performed at the Eurovision National Finals in 2008 and 2010).
Farida will be performing classics including Azeri jazz, R&B, rock and her own compositions of new music composed for multi-instrumentation.
Farida's debut performance at The Back Room in July was nearly sold-out, so don't miss this unique opportunity to see her playing bass, guitar, keyboards and singing with a live drummer and The Back Room's own Sam Rudin on congas.
This is an exhilarating show with laser light and fog machine effects and musical wizardry that will leave you mesmerized.
