Robin Barnes & The Fiyabirds
Contemporary crossover singer Robin Barnes is more than an award winning artist, she’s also one of the city of New Orleans’ biggest ambassadors. Robin grew up surrounded by jazz sounds, as made evident by a #5 debut on the Traditional Jazz Albums Billboard charts in 2016, but her current sound, Robin Barnes & the Fiya Birds, is more Chaka Khan than Ella Fitzgerald. With an electric live performance and a voice that is as powerful with a whisper as it is with a scream, Robin proudly carries the official distinction of the “Songbird of New Orleans."
