Transcendent diva, cabaret artiste, and jazz singer Mama Alto is a non-binary trans femme person of colour who works with the radical potential of storytelling, strength in softness & power in vulnerability. Fierce, femme & fabulous, she has been lauded as “divine” (Havana Tribune, Cuba), “near flawless” (The Age), and “a knockout” (The Herald Sun). She fascinates audiences with “an idiosyncratic mix of statuesque fragility” (The Music) and is described as “transcendent” (Stage Whispers), “breathtaking” (ArtsHub), “hypnotically beautiful, elegant & mysterious” (Adelaide Advertiser) & “bewitching” (SameSame). 
Drawing on legacies of vintage torch singers and her own identity, Mama Alto delivers sublime storytelling every performance. Mama Alto has performed at Adelaide Cabaret Festival, Darwin Festival, Havana International Theatre Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Fringe Festival, Stonnington Jazz Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Fringe World Perth, Castlemaine State Festival, and returns to the Marysville Jazz & Blues Weekend for her third year consecutively.
"We adore coming to Marysville Jazz & Blues - it is always one of the highlights of our year. The festival is such a beautiful union of art and community, and the appreciation for the way music connects us all! It is particularly special to us as my grandparents regularly holidayed in Marysville, whilst Miss Chief, my pianist, is from Buxton herself! Viva Marysville Jazz & Blues!"
