Hold You Tonight is the new single by singer, songwriter, MC and producer, Alicia Saldenha. It is part of a new creative project by the Trinidadian vocalist, composer and activist. She is well-known as a jazz, soul and funk singer-songwriter based in Japan, with two albums, “Rose” (with renowned instrumental group, indigo jam unit) and “Dance with the Sun” (her solo album) under her belt. She is the founder of Freedom Fest Japan, a festival devoted to human rights and social justice, as well as the producer and host of the music podcast, VibeOlogy, on Blackan Radio, Japan.
As Lady A (aka Alicia Saldenha), the versatile singer showcases her edgier side, original rap, Caribbean and electronic dance music which she calls TDM or Tropical Electronic Dance Music, and her work as an MC and producer.
Hold You Tonight is a Lady A Remake of a hit song by award-winning Trinidadian soca artist, Machel Montano. The original track also features Vybz Kartel. Saldenha puts her own spin on the track, which she produced, and gives the formerly hyper-masculine song a strong but decidedly feminine touch.
