Martha High, the blond-haired black princess with the diamond voice, has sung with many great artists and above all James Brown, with whom she had been working for almost 25 years.

Aged 61, she still perfectly delivers the power of Soul to her audience and soothes the heart of her fans by her natural kindness. Shes going to hit the road again and this time she will be accompanied by the new revelation from the French Soul/ Funk scene : the Shaolin Temple Defenders.

James Brown discovered Martha High in 1966 as she was busy touring with the The Jewels,a famous female vocal group from the 1960s. From then on, she had been known as the platin blond soul sister with a great voice .
She spent almost 25 years with the Godfather and it sure was a performance that nobody else had ever challenged. Indeed, the Funky Diva has appeared on many funky masterpieces such as Payback, Bodyheat or Doin it to Death and on the unforgettable duet with James Brown himself, Summertime .

Martha High, after spending 25 years on stage with James Brown as main feminine chorist, leads the Maceo Parker backing vocal team since 1988 . May 2008: A live album recorded with the Shaolin Temple Defenders, the Soul Funk French revelation, during several tour with them will be available.
