Nina Simone was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century and an icon of American music. She was the consummate musical storyteller — a griot, as she would come to learn, who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion, and love expressed through a magnificent body of works. She earned the moniker ‘High Priestess of Soul’ for her ability to weave a spell so seductive and hypnotic that listeners lost track of time and space as they became absorbed in the moment.
