“Queen of Funk” returns to Pori Jazz after 15 years and the reunion will be longed-for as there are only a few stars as bright as Chaka Khan. During her career, which expands for four decades, she has received ten Grammy Awards and sold more than 70 million albums. She rose to stardom in the late 70’s as the lead singer of American funk band Rufus and made an immediate impression with a gorgeous voice and her exceptional stage presence and charisma. Chaka Khan is hailing from Chicago and there’s even a street named after her at her hometown. She holds a unique position in the history of popular music, as there’s only one Chaka Khan.
