The Big Mumma’s is a soulful journey from the women who started it all.
Often going without any acknowledgement, their music was loud, raunchy and big. Many of their songs made famous by men!..
‘You Ain’t Nothing but a Hound dog’… is probably best remembered as an Elvis hit!.. But in actual fact it was first recorded by Big Mama Thornton.
The Mumma’s are a force to be reckoned with and their stories are compelling, triumphant and tragic… however they will never be forgotten!
The music is deep, rich and has a groove that will take some time well after the performance to leave you.
Starring the very blues, ballsy and brilliant Jade da Silva supported with a backbone of a gospel, soul and funk band like no other.
Featuring such artists as Ma Rainey, Bessie Smith, Big Mama Thornton, Koko Taylor, Billie Holiday, Mavis Staples, Mahalia Jackson, Etta James, Betty Davis. Sharon Jones, Betty LaVette, Nina Simone and a few more.
Jade da Silva brings an honest and true rendition of all the ‘mumma’s. Her multi-cultural roots and theatrical background add an authentic dimension making her the perfect vehicle to take the audience on this soulful experience. With 20 years’ experience touring and recording, now is the time to bring these women front of stage ….. in this political climate, the stories of The Big Mumma’s are more relevant than ever before!!!
