About the Album

Living In A Dream is the debut jazz album from Kalya Ramu, one of Toronto’s rising star vocalists. Featuring four of Ramu’s original compositions and a selection of songs written from1920’s to ’40s, this recording captures the essence of the golden age of swing and transports it to the modern day. Ramu’s original compositions combine a classic Tin Pan Alley writing style with contemporary lyrical content, helping to modernize the music while still preserving its core stylistic elements. Her arrangements of rarely recorded jazz standards hold true to the spirit of the music, bringing new life to the neglected repertoire. Ramu’s dynamic singing evokes nostalgia for a past era. Her vocal stylings have been compared to those of Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, and Sarah Vaughan, three giants of jazz whose influence Ramu has been soaking up since she began performing at the tender age of twelve. Now twenty-five, Ramu is thrilled to add her voice to the list of singers who have interpreted this incredible music. Ramu is very active in the Toronto music scene, leading, writing for and performing with multiple groups, including her blues-rock band Angora, The Bettys, her own band Kal’s Hot Four, along with a number of others. Living In A Dream was officially released worldwide on Friday, May 10th, 2019.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
