Jazz artist Michelle Manzo comes to town Vibrant jazz performer Michelle Manzo with her exotic, warm voice and four-octave range will be a mainstay at the Park Lounge of the Park Hyatt Hotel Saigon in District 1. The Miami-born singer, who also performs classical pieces, recalls hearing Cuban folk music as a child. “Our family used to get together and play percussion instruments and chant. It is a spiritual connection that most Cubans have. But I had a special interest in classical music, especially Bach, Mozart and Beethoven.” A self-taught pianist, Michelle developed a true passion over the years for jazz, a genre where the syncopated rhythms of her Cuban and African musical roots combined with the complex harmonies found in classical music.
