TAIDA PEARL –Taïda Pearl was born in France and grew up in South of France. One day, she played one of her father's records and immediately fell in love with music. It was a song by Elvis Presley. Taida's father also influenced her interest in Jazz as she grew up listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong and Frank Sinatra. When she turned 14, she began singing in a classical choir and later became part of a pop band. Franck Zappa, Peter Gabriel, Phil Collins, Michael McDonald, Sarah Vaughan, Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Julia Fordham are the great voices who marked her teen-age years.
After touring for years in the South of France, Taïda moved to Paris to reinvent herself . 'Taïda Pearl' was born. Her artist name comes from the scientific name of Taïda's favorite flower, the orchid, and also refers to drums, her favorite instrument. In Paris, Taïda took singing lessons to improve her voice and understand how to maximize the gift she had been given. She then performed in famous Parisian jazz clubs such as "Le Baiser Salé," "After Midnight," "Le Caveau de la Huchette," and "Aux Trois Malletz."
Taïda recently moved to the U.S. to fulfill a childhood dream and perform in the country of her idols. However, it is obvious when she performs that wherever she is in the world, the stage is Taïda's home. She has a warm personality, a great sense of humor and genuinely connects with her audience.
