Where would the world be—much less our Chulita vinyl collections—if the world had never been graced with the musical genius of the High Priestess of Soul?!

Born Eunice Kathleen Waymon in Tryon, North Carolina on February 21st, 1933, she was one of the most extraordinary artists of the twentieth century, an icon of American music. She was the consummate musical storyteller, who used her remarkable talent to create a legacy of liberation, empowerment, passion, and love through a magnificent body of works.

She earned the moniker ‘High Priestess of Soul’ for she could weave a spell so seductive and hypnotic that the listener lost track of time and space as they became absorbed in the moment. She was who the world would come to know as Nina Simone (1933-2003). -excerpt from the official Nina Simone website .
