She has played on stages on both continents and beyond with all of the most revered players of this style, earning the respect of these luminaries and their discerning audiences. With a repertoire encompassing everything from Django compositions to Salsa to traditional Turkish music, a whole new world of musical exploration awaits all who witness a performance. The energy created when Daisy’s quartet hits the stage is always impressive. Joining her for this performance will be Max O’Rourke and Josh Kaye on guitars and Zach Serleth on bass. They are happy to be among the new generation of players helping to bring this beautiful music from the past into the future.

She is regularly performing locally in New York jazz venues with her quartet, as well as touring in different parts of the world, such as Australia, New Zealand and Europe. Simona's style is known for its unique theatrical flavor, genre-bending, and virtuosic vocal scat improvisation. 'Bird Language' is a musical controversy between tribal roots, "bird-scat', Lithuanian zither arpeggios, and chants incorporated into urban musical styles such as jazz and rock. At the Red Room Simona will be performing with her fellow colleagues from Berklee College of Music years: Rinat Tregerman on piano, Aaron Holthus on double bass, and Andres Fonseca on percussion.
