With ease, soul, and versatility, her velvet vocal tones reflect the emotion and beauty of her homeland, in a smooth ascension of melody, technique, and heart. Her timing and delivery of phrases create an unforgettable feeling of joy in the listener.

Every nuance articulates a dynamic story that grabs your attention and makes you want to hear where she will take you next.

Rouhangeze joined the UK's JazzFM family in 2021, hosting "Jazz Odyssey" broadcasting live. every Friday night. The show explores the musical cross-pollination of jazz and beyond, celebrating unity in diversity.

 

That same year, she was included in the She Said So - Alternative Power 100 Music List.

My look ahead is a nod to Polish keyboard player Tomasz Bura and his band The Scientists.

 This is hard-hitting fusion á la Chick Corea or Ursula Dudziak, with vocal improv from the enchanting Rouhangeze Baichoo,   reframed for today. One of the most exciting bands on the British jazz scene right now. Inspirational music to leave you brimming over brilliantly composed and executed with an obvious synergy and joy.
