AIN'T I A WOMAN
ALL ABOUT TRUTH
PAULINE's ode to Sojourner Truth reflects the emotional content of her soul and transports it into the now. PAULINE was inspired to re-introduce and re-imagine the core essence of Sojourner Truth, a strong and unapologetic Black woman!
TAP INTO THE CORE
NWAYO (pronounced n-wah-yo) is a Haitian Creole word that refers to the hardest part of the fruit, or the core, and aptly represents PAULINE's deep reflection from her most recent body ofwork. Through compositions and arrangements, PAULINE passionately reveals her personal narrative and explores the fusion between tradition and modernity by blending jazz with Haitian rhythms and tonalities.
A MUSICAL OFFERING
The album is comprised of unique arrangements of the standards, blues and traditional Haitian music. PAULINE shows us her ability and dedication to
connect her Haitian background with the heritage of jazz. Her velvety voice has a range from the low resonance and earthiness of the great Sarah Vaughan to the electrifying voltage of Nina Simone. Pauline’s rich voice will stay with you!
