Biography

“All the great singers I’ve been listening to, got so familiar and so close to me through the power of their art.I feel I know each one of them personaly.They are family.These wonderful spirits were able to fill the emptiness of my heart and soul and gave a meaning to my life.”

When people ask where I come from, I say I’m a child of the universe. I normally feel at home anywhere so long as I’m free to move around and explore! —Elisabeth Kontomanou

Back To My Groove is a major albeit hard won breakthrough for vocalist/composer Elisabeth Kontomanou. Born in France to a father from Guinea (West Africa) and a mother from Greece, Elisabeth has put it all on the line on this album. Nothing she has done before this equals what she has achieved here. This is more than a great singer singing great songs. This is literally life.

My new album revolves around personal things like my suffering in the past and my hopes for the future. There are old songs on it as well as more recent material. I’d say that unlike the last two albums I did, which featured covers of jazz classics, this album is simply a lot more personal. The songs I wrote for it tell the story of my life and while the episodes it touches on aren’t always funny, I think there’s an optimistic feel to things overall. —Elisabeth Kontomanou
