"A gorgeous vocal instrument ... Her (Lina's) ethereal sound and exquisite attention to detail had me dancing in my seat and tearing up at the same time... A highly stylized jazz singer with one of the best bands I have ever heard... She sings from her soul?" - New York Cabaret Today
Acclaimed international vocalist and recording artist Lina Orfanos is a mezzo-soprano who sings in popular, classical, jazz, and world musical styles. She has a lush voice with faultless intonation and great rhythmic footing. Lina is immersed in the sonorous cultures of the United States, Latin America, and the Mediterranean. Singing in English, French, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, and Spanish comes easily to her. Whether performing an old Greek folk lament, paying tribute to Ella Fitzgerald's version of "Night and Day," or inspiring a young composer to set Spanish poems to music for her, Lina proves that songbirds can soar.
