Born in France in 1972 to French and West African parents, the award-winning Mina Agossi first came to attention when she co-produced an album of original tunes entitled Voice & Bass, using no wind, brass or keyboard instruments. After working with Archie Shepp she produced her first live album, recorded in Brooklyn, eponymously titled E-Z Pass to Brooklyn, that took elements of hip hop, world music, blues and rock. In 2005 she won ‘Best Newcomer’ at The Adami Awards that led to her appearing at numerous festivals and Clubs around the world. Mina is currently promoting her latest album Fresh, which she says 'breaks down barriers, reinventing the music...blurring the boundaries between jazz, pop, rock...giving a new perspective on a 20 year career.' Tonight Mina will be performing material from Fresh with her French band of Romain Ross on guitar, Eric Jacot on bass and Simon Bernier on drums.
