Caro Emerald

Popular jazz singer Caro Emerald takes the ballroom jazz, cinematic tangos, grooving jazz tracks and infectious mambos of the golden age of Hollywood, and effortlessly blends them with smoking popular beats, catchy hooks and inventive production. She’s a natural-born talent, and her sojourn in Sheffield is not to be missed.
