Agossi, who has done a number of shows in major cities across the globe and has more than 10 music albums in the market, is planning to release her next album later this year.
“I plan to release another album in September this year,” she said, but refused to divulge any details. Pointing out that jazz is not very popular in India, she said it can be popularised if concerts in this genre of music are organised in various parts of the country at regular intervals.
Jazz is a music genre that originated at the beginning of the 20th century within the African-American communities of the Southern United States.
Agossi’s concert in the city has been organised by the Indian Council for Cultural Relations and Sangeet Natak Academy in association with Parul Group of Institutes.
