Sydney Jazz vocalist, Emma Pask made her return to the Adelaide Fringe with a spectacular performance at The Garden’s Spiegeltent. Pask has been kicking around in the Australian Jazz scene since she was sixteen years old but she is notably known for competing in the 2013 series of The Voice.
After her appearance on The Voice, she was inspired by an offer to collaborate with Ricky Martin (which never came to be) to create her own album fusing Latin and Jazz styles. The Latin Jazz genre is not something I have really encountered before, but Pask has made it her own and the fusion of styles is really entertaining to watch.
Pask’s jazz-style performance feels fitting in the magical Spiegeltent, which manages to take you to another time and place. However, there were moments where it would have been nice to get up and dance in a non-seated venue.
Pask delivers a bright and dynamic performance with her unique fusion of Latin and Jazz captivating the audience. Her elegant vocals are incredible and proved why she is an award-winning Jazz vocalist.
Star rating: 4 out of 5 stars.
