|Black is the Colour of My Voice|
Inspired by the life of Nina Simone, Apphia Campbell's hit one-woman show follows jazz musician and civil rights activist Mena Bordeaux as she undergoes a three-day period of spiritual cleansing following the untimely death of her father. During a three-day spiritual cleanse, Mena reflects on the journey that took her from a piano prodigy destined for a life serving the church to a renowned jazz vocalist at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement. Embarking on a UK wide tour after multiple sold-out performances in Shanghai, NYC and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, ‘Black Is the Color of My Voice shines' (Time Out Shanghai).
Campbell may wear Simone’s trademark head wrap and sing some of her best-known songs, but her performance goes beyond mere impersonation. The Times
