Libra Sene is a native New Yorker. She started singing at a very early age in a musical family. Her uncle Herbert Tisdale was a celebrated trumpet player who toured with several jazz greats. He encouraged Libra’s love of music and learning. She attended the High School of Performing Arts. Soon after completion, Libra was recruited by the girl group MUSIQUE that had the chart-topping hits In The Bush, Keep On Jumping, and Summer Love. They toured Europe and Las Vegas and appeared on television and dance programs. Libra went solo to develop her night club act, performing Jazz and Soul. At a New York club, Ornette Coleman was so impressed with Libra’s voice that he hired her to sing on the soundtrack of his film Box Office directed by Josef Bogdanovich. Libra became one of New York’s most popular Jazz and Neo-soul artists. She sings standards and blends them with her own unique repertoire. Her performances leave the audience wanting more. Libra performed at Birdland, S.O.B’s, The Blue Note, and B.B. King’s, and regularly at Ashford and Simpson’s Sugar Bar. Her one-woman show, SONG BIRD, was well-received in Europe, The Middle East, and West Africa. Libra resides in West Palm Beach where she continues to share her joy and love of music.
