Multi-lingual vocalist Allison Adams Tucker has a passion for world cultures and the communication of music that binds us all. She began singing before she could speak, raised in the home of classically trained musician parents in the Southern California city of San Diego, and has performed in front of audiences since her childhood.
Her love for studying languages also began at a young age, and she has gone on to travel, study, and sing in 6 languages besides her own (and the language of music, of course). Her travels have taken her to over 12 countries, with a large piece of her heart and her life spent in Japan and Latin America.
This "wanderlust" is distinctive in the music she chooses today. Give a listen and come with her on a journey that evokes images of sounds, generations, and lands both distant and in our backyard.

Hi Allison! Have you tried to link up with me? The access to The Jazz Network has been down for a while here in China :-(
A got a mail from Allison and hope that's you. Anyway nice to make your acquaintance and I am pleased to be your friend. You have a very interesting repertory - well done!!
Allison- Whenever it gets below zero here I dream of
San Diego- Mark O'connor lives there- he's the amazing fiddler/violinist from Nashville who has been featured on the Appalachian Waltz albums with yo-yo-ma and edgar meyer, and has a pretty awesome hot club trio- you two
should meet- something outside the box might develop--Anyway, thanks for the comments about the Harp/bass duo- I really think the two voices are quite complementary, and we're trying to see what repertoire works- Sunita Staneslow, originally from St. Paul, lives in Israel and comes to the states a few times a year to do harp workshops- she is using an Irish folk harp in the recording- very glass-like sound- she performs mostly celtic and jewish music, but I'm trying to jam some gershwin and ellington in there- Flatbush Waltz is by Andy Statman- a great klezmer musician (clarinet?)She also does a lot of Sephardic music- truly beautiful melding of jewish, moorish, spanish, balkan- sung in Ladino- We're playing At the Greek Theater in L.A. June 6- you might wish to take I trip up - I can often get house seats- costs $ but good seats- anyway- stay in touch- gary
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
