Jazz vocalist Christiana Drapkin has been performing in New York and on the East Coast for over twenty years. She is noted for her lyrical and highly personal delivery of ballads and for her artful scat improvisations. Christiana’s singing is deeply immersed in the rich traditions of Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and Carmen McRae. La Lucha was named Best Local Jazz Ensemble runner-up in the 2018 Best of the Bay awards.
