Wash. DC based jazz vocalist LOIDE (pronounced "Loy-deh") has roots in Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau though born in France and raised in California. Serving up a mix of contemporary jazz and warm afro-lusophone rhythms, Loide's music is reflective of her own eclectic roots. An immigration attorney by day, she has spent the last 9 years honing her musical craft in some of the nation's hippest speakeasies and jazz clubs by night.

Loide serves up straight ahead jazz coated with lush bossa rhythms - an exquisite blend reflective of her own eclectic roots. She cites Sarah Vaughn, Cesaria Evora and Miriam Makeba as some of her greatest musical influences, but it is her Guinea Bissau and Mozambican heritage that has provided her with a fresh musical perspective, a unique sound, and her native tongue, Portuguese.
