Gospel diva Liz McComb

By Alison Hird

American singer Liz Mc Comb has had an illustrious career singing Negro Spirituals and Gospel music. But music runs through her veins and she's equally at ease with soul, blues and jazz. On her latest album Brassland, recorded in Paris, Kingston, New York and New Orleans she also ventures, successfully, into reggae. She talks to RFI about the spirit of her music: the expression of love for God and her fellow human beings, but not of religion.

Liz McComb plays at Embarcadere in Aubervilliers on Saturday 8 November as part of the Villes des Musiques du Monde festival
