The extraordinary American singer and music industry legend Debbie Sledge released "We Are Family" in 1979 with her group Sister Sledge. It remains one of the most popular and enduring songs of all time. She also collaborated with James Brown on his historic "Rumble in the Jungle" concert in Zaïre 1974. A devoted Jazz singer as well, she has performed at the Cotton Club in Harlem and many more famous venues.

Since teaming up with acclaimed jazz pianist Niels Lan Doky, they are taking audiences by storm with compelling renditions of both soul and jazz classics, and also lesser known gems have garnered standing ovations night after night. Their music, supported by two young and promising talents - bassist Tobias Dall and drummer Niclas Bardeleben -, is vibrant, emotionally intense and intuitive.

Note: As of November 26, 2017, "We Are Family" by Debbie Sledge & Niels Lan Doky is number ONE in the UK Jazz FM playlist for two month in a row!
