Haitian-American Vocalist and Music Therapist, Claudia Eliaza was not looking to add more to her already full schedule when she ended up, through a twist of fate, at a dining room sing-along in Dan Zanes’ Brooklyn home. This chance Labor Day meeting in 2016 put her on a path from Boston to Brooklyn via the Kennedy Center and cities throughout the U.S. and Canada. In 2018 Claudia and Dan were married! And now she’s Claudia Zanes! She and Dan collaborated on the songbook Dan Zanes’ House Party: A Family Roots Music Treasury which was published in December 2018.
