Blues Singer Zakiya Hooker in Concert at Blues on the Bow

Blues vocalist Zakiya Hooker & Mississippi Blues travel to Alberta on Saturday, April 8, 2006, to perform as part of the Blues at the Bow Live Concert Series 2006 in Bow Island. Joining Hooker for the concert is special guest vocalist Chris James, of “Natural Four” fame. Backed by the 9-piece Mississippi Blues band, the two will bring to life “A Tribute to Marvin Gaye & Curtis Mayfield”

Zakiya Hooker was born into the blues as the daughter of blues icon John Lee Hooker, and has gone on to establish herself as a respected performing and recording artist. Her music confidently carries her father’s seminal Blues torch burning within her own powerful voice.

Zakiya has released two albums, and appeared in director Martin Scorsese’s Radio City Music Hall blues concert in New York City, filmed and released as a feature in 2005, and was showcased in San Scorsese’s PBS-TV series “The Blues.”
