start bold>In celebration of the life of Nina Simone (1933-2003) the CIFF is proud to host this partnership presentation in honor of the 25th Anniversary of the Tri-C Jazz Fest.

NINA SIMONE: LOVE SORCERESS is an extraordinary, rarely seen document of a 1976 Paris concert. Simone's artistry defies classification. From the 1950s until her passing away last spring, she continually collapsed musical boundaries, romaing across classical, jazz, blues, folk, pop and soul music. The unique perspectives and social protests in her songs have inspired generations. And of course there is her voice - a potent instrument unmatched in soulful emotion and deep texture. THe many musical moods of this legendary songstress are captured in this riveting performance. Join us in celebrating the often unpredictable and always breathtaking High Priestess of Soul. - Peter Lucas' Sound Unseen
