Dida Pelled
New York-based Israeli guitarist and vocalist Dida has a particular talent for storytelling. Whether it be a jazz standard, a scorching blues number, an old country ballad, or a heartfelt original “Dida sings in a voice sometimes playful, warm, resonant, no frills. She sings the words, giving them their meaning, their weight, with perfect diction and charm." (Jazz Hot, France)

One of the first people to take note of Dida's abilities and promise was trumpet player and producer Fabio Morgera who put together her first recording project. The album 'Dida Plays and Sings' was released on the quality Italian label 'Red Records' in 2011 and boasts two of today's jazz greats on the bill, Roy Hargrove and Gregory Hutchinson. 'All About Jazz' chose the album as one of the best albums of that year and asserts that "Pelled's warm voice possesses an emotive quality that's simultaneously soothing and intoxicating, and her guitar playing, which is built on her round sound, strong comping skills and soulful single note solo lines, places her in a category all her own." (All About Jazz)

Dida has graduated with honors from the prestigious Jazz Department at The New School. She has been performing in both larger and smaller venues worldwide, including: Smalls Jazz Club, Duc Des Lombards, Rockwood Music Hall, City Winery, Highline Ballroom, The Living Room, Dizzy's at Lincoln Center and other notable musical landmarks, as well as worldwide at the Fillmore Jazz Festival- SF, Padova Jazz Festival in Italy, Atlanta Jazz Festival, Ottawa Jazz Festival, Red Sea Jazz Festival and The Tel Aviv Jazz Festival in Israel, among others.

Dida’s second album ‘Modern Love Songs’ was recorded by Grammy-winning engineer Helik Hadar and includes Sam Yahel on organ. The album was released in Israel and in the US in May 2015 and is available at stores in Italy and Japan as well. The Album was released in France on September 14th 2015 and Dida celebrated the release with shows at Nancy Jazz Festival and Sunside Jazz Club in October 2015.

Dida recently released her third album, 'A Missing Shade Of Blue', an instrumental bluesy guitar/organ trio with Rodney Green on drums and Luke Carlos O'Reilly on organ, plus special guests, under the Italian label 'Red Records'.
