The Blue Dahlia @ Rockwood

Dahlia Dumont: vocals, ukulele, songwriter. Brooklyn-girl, yet a nomad at heart, Dahlia Dumont travelled the world from a very young age, always absorbing the cultural and musical influences in her path. Her Eastern European heritage as well as her years living between France and Senegal as a anthropology student shaped her musical palette, and in 2012, gave birth to her ‘Blue Dahlia.’

‘Blue Dahlia:’ Lyrics in English and in French, French and Mexican accordion, klezmer violin, the warm, groovy rhythms of reggae, ska and Latin America, and the sensual voices of jazz and la chanson française. The music can be heard as an acoustic trio from inside the intimate bistros of New York City and Paris, as well as the full, electric big band ensemble in various venues and festivals around the world.

In July 2015, Dahlia self-released her first album, followed by a three week tour to France, Germany and the UK. Dahlia returned to Paris and Brittany for her 2016 summer tour.

The second album is now underway, which will feature musicians from both her NYC and Parisian bands, as well as original portraits by the multimedia Tunisian artist, Samia Farah!

Today Dahlia lives between New York and Paris.
