N’DEE will present songs from her debut album “Lyannaj”, paying a tribute to the close relationship between Afro-Caribbean Music from the Diaspora and American Jazz. N’DEE takes you on a unique musical journey, from Africa to Guadeloupe and throughout the Americas, by embracing various musical genres, from Miriam Makeba to Nina simone and from Guadeloupian Gwoka to Jazz. “Lyannaj” (means to Connect; To Win Over; To Unite in Solidarity) is a word deeply rooted in Caribbean tradition and culture and speaks directly to your heart.

 On February 11, 2011 Glawdys N’Dee was featured on France O, one of France’s largest television production / broadcaster companies, as a part of a project to highlight Glawdys N’Dee’s remarkable career.

In this recent interview with France O, Former Miles Davis musical director and pianist Robert Irving III says: “…she is very authentic in what she does…and very knowledgeable..” Noted Jazz critic Neil Tesser Wrote “N’Dee’s vocal style has a restrained intensity, a quality shared by the lineage of jazz singers that stretches from Billie Holiday through Nina Simone……The impressive Lyannaj heralds a Chicago artist of unusual depth and world class promise…”

Glawdys N’Dee’s debut album, LYANNAJ was selected by one of The Best Vocal album and Best Chicago’s recordings of 2010. Brad Walseth notes, “N’Dee has hit upon a winning combination here by combining her strong voice with multicultural styles and a positive uplifting message that the listener will enjoy hearing often…”

The Lyannaj album is now available on ITunes, and can be purchased at each of the concert appearances For additional informations on GLAWDYS N’DEE AND THE LYANNAJ ENSEMBLE OF CHICAGO and its music mission, please log onto:, or email
