new music | Lulu Fall

Songwriter, singer, and actor Lulu Fall is of Senegalese and Cameroonian parentage, and her music reflects her global perspective by way of her American sensibilities. A formally trained jazz vocalist with a musical theater background, Lulu brings a unique visual and dramatic style to her music while centering her songs in American R & B tradition. Lulu was a performer in the Smithsonian’s American Songbook Program, and ensemble member in Studio Theatre’s adaptation of Passing Strange. She was also a featured ensemble member in the acclaimed hippie love-rock musical HAIR. Lulu holds a degree in Jazz studies, and it shows in her composing and performing style. Her new album is appropriately titled Between Two Worlds, with the title track boldly claiming her African heritage. The album has a strong, rhythmic groove, delivered with a vocal edge that connects deeply with our own sense of anxiety about the world around us; and yet Lulu transforms the angst with sustained, soaring vocals that speak of beauty to be found. Between Two Worlds hits on November 8,
