NINA SIMONE a Retrospective

Nina Simone’s Discography!

A New Day – Nina Simone An Exhibition of Albums, Archives, and ArtNina was born in North Carolina, USA, February 21, 1933. In the late 50s she recorded her first album. One song, “I Loves You Porgy“, became a hit and Nina became a star, performing at Town Hall, Carnegie Hall and at jazz festivals with a repertoire ranging from gospel music to African music, from blues to Ellington songs, from classical music to folk songs of diverse origin. Although Nina was called the “High Priestess of Soul” by her fans and was regarded by them as an almost religious figure, she was often misunderstood as well. The High Priestess would walk different paths to find the adequate songs to spread her message. Nina Simone died April 21, 2003 in Carry-le-Rouet, Bouches-du-Rhne, France.
