"The celebrated chanteuse extraordinaire Aelita Neihausen is a Latvian icon who rhapsodises hearts the world over"

Aelita among "the golden voices of history", Jan 23, 2014 Malaga, Spain

"Aelita is the only Latvian-born singer who has made a career in Big Band/Swing circles in Canada and the USA. Aelita has performed together with the biggest names in Jazz - with such incredibles as Sarah Vaughan, Stan Getz, Dizzy Gillespie, and Lionel Hampton."

Her first CD "Around the World in 60 Minutes" was released in 1999 and includes the most romantic songs of the 20th century sung in 12 languages (endorsed by Anthony Quinn). Her second CD "The Song Is You" is a collection of swing classics performed by Aelita and her 16-piece orchestra – for which she was awarded "Best Vocalist" at the Canadian Big Bands Showdown in 2000, 2001 & 2002.

CD "Swing Around the World" was recorded in New York in 2007 with one of the best big bands in the world: Sherrie Maricle & The DIVA Jazz Orchestra. The musical genius of Tommy Newsom's arrangements skillfully interweaves jazz classics with symphonic sound - masterfully performed by an all-female 15 piece orchestra and a string section. The repertoire includes jazz standards, Broadway hits and international favorites sung in English, French, Russian, Italian and Chinese. In “CABARET A LA RUSSE” released in May 2010, Aelita reinterprets classic songs with a Russian, French and Yiddish Twist. In “SONGS MY FATHER TAUGHT ME” recorded in June 2010, Aelita pays tribute to her late father and her heritage in a beautifully selected compilation of Yiddish songs.

CABARET A LA RUSSE!
“Once in a great while audiences have the opportunity to enjoy such a unique talent as Aelita, known the world over as "The Queen of Cabaret”. Her warmth, charm and personality make her one of the world's greatest performers, who will win the hearts of any audience.”
E. Hannan - Florida Sun Times

"Aelita is a world-renowned talent of rare proportions in these days of instant celebrity where singer's one-hit careers come and go quicker than yesterday's news. Much of that staying power obviously comes from her true passion and "from the heart" approach to her musical career. After all, her repertoire includes a singing style that covers sixteen languages, while her vocal stylings have been compared to the formidable likes of Barbra Streisand and Edith Piaf."
