The artistic voice: Ysi Kalima

Ysi Kalima

My art is expressed through my versatile voice, my extensive range and with all the musical skills and expressive capacity I can muster, happily managing different musical styles ranging from Jazz to Rock by way of Bossa Nova, Latin Music, traditional African Music, Chanson Française and Gospel, always striving for originality, expressiveness and personal interpretation.

“Yolanda Sánchez was able to combine all the vocal themes, revealing one of the most harmonious voices of the evening. She offered all kinds of touches, clarity in attack, good breathing control, even indulging in the luxury of a broken voice with an appealing dash of huskiness in her rendition of Sam Brown’s “Stop”, and she topped off her performance with Pat Benatar’s “Fire and Ice”.
