Sing the Truth
It was obvious to Claude Nobs that he should host this tribute to Nina Simone. Over her four concerts at the Festival (1968, 1976, 1987, 1990), the pianist impressed the public and forged a solid bond with the event’s founder. During the more sombre periods of Nina Simone’s career, Claude Nobs always gave her his support. As, despite her talent, which was as exceptional as it was precocious, the career of the civil rights militant had its ups and downs. Sing the Truth is an occasion to celebrate an impressively profound repertoire with some top class voices, including that of Nina’s daughter.
