Loide Jorge: Immigration Lawyer By Day And Jazz Singer By Night



Written By: MIM!—Washington, DC based jazz vocalist LOIDE (pronounced "Loy-deh") has roots in Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau but she was born in France and raised in California. Serving up a mix of contemporary jazz and warm African samba infused rhythms, LOIDE's music is reflective of her own diverse roots. An immigration attorney by day, LOIDE has spent the last 9 years honing her musical craft in some of the nation's hippest speakeasies and jazz clubs by night.

Her latest CD, Loide, Live at Bohemian Caverns, was released last Fall (impressive considering LOIDE released the CD just one month after she opened her immigration law firm). The CD is a live recording of original material as well as some old time favorites (such as a cover of Sade's Love Is Stronger Than Pride) ... perfect for our Sunday!
