About Monica Shaka


Monica grew up surrounded by the sounds of her father, bebop jazz clarinet player Tony Scott. She started singing at the early age of 6 when her father noticed her interest and talent. Throughout her childhood she collaborated on various occasions with Tony on stage and in the studio ( 'Lush Life' double album at age 12) before branching out on her own and traveling the world for a modeling career. She continued her training and sang whenever she could. Returning to Europe she recorded a CD, a collection of jazz ballads that recount her story with jazz, a personal voyage, featuring her father, who recorded at age 84 years of age, just before his passing. A touching and heart rendering album.
