Indigo has wealthy experience performing in private functions, corporate events, parties and weddings. They are the duo to call for style and sophistication.
Shameem Taheri-Lee – vocals
“Some performers need the audience to listen long and carefully before anyone gets that there is something good going on. With Shameem you’d have to be locked in a lead-lined room to miss this lady’s sparkle. Her charisma and sheer energy on stage command attention and the listener is rewarded with a swinging, soulful sound – this is what jazz is all about.”
– James Morrison, Australian jazz virtuoso
