Bio

Mama Alto is a gender-transcending diva, cabaret artiste and jazz singer. She has most recently been critically praised as “near flawless” (The Age), “a knockout” (The Herald Sun), “velvet-voiced” (Sometimes Melbourne), and “an idiosyncratic mix of statuesque fragility” (The Music). Drawing on the legacies of vintage torch singers and from her own identity as a queer person of colour, Mama Alto’s vocal and visual aesthetic embraces and celebrates perceived difference, reclaims narratives of Othering, defies the normative, and rejoices in the sublime.
