Ramsgate Festival of Sound is truly delighted to host Sabina Desir and the Doug Sides Trio. Jazz Vocalist Sabina Desir has very much established herself within East Kent since becoming a Ramsgate resident. She has performed at Margate Jazz Festival, Margate Winter Gardens, Folkestone Ethnic Jazz Festival, Eleto Jazz Rooms, Ramsgate Music Hall and most recently at Thanet’s International Woman’s Day concert, where a review of her performance was described as ‘ a master class in the art of Jazz vocals’! Though seeped in the tradition of Jazz, Sabina is very much at home across the genre from Neo-Jazz to Swing…she is also an improvisational artist who Rachel’s in the art of Scat.Though seeped in the tradition of Jazz, Sabina is very much at home across the genre from Neo-Jazz to Swing, she is also an improvisational artist who revels in the art of Scat.
“In recent years Doug has toured with Benny Gilson and has been the regular drummer for Phil Woods. A well schooled all round percussionist..he is also a composer and arranger. Sabina and Doug have been working together for nearly 2 years.They are joined by the exciting pianist Roger Alexander Lewin and creative bassist Maurizio Borgna. Arrive early to avoid disappointment. Afternoon tea is available in the beautiful setting of the Italianate Greenhouse, one of Ramsgate’s jewels”
