Adriana Kaegi

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adriana Kaegi (born March 17, 1957) is a Swiss-born American actress, producer and former singer.


Kaegi co-founded the band Kid Creole and the Coconuts together with August Darnell and Coati Mundi, both formerly of Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band.

The band won the British Music Award for Best International Live Act, and Kaegi appeared with the band on The Tonight Show, Saturday Night Live, the movie Against All Odds, the presidential inauguration of George H. W. Bush, a benefit hosted by Princess Diana for the children's charity Barnardo's, the 40th anniversary of the UN, and a performance at Carnegie Hall with Cab Calloway.[1] She has also sung with U2, Miguel Bosé, Towa Tei, Vodka Collins and created the all-female band Boomerang.

Kaegi made a documentary film about her time with Kid Creole and the Coconuts,[2] and in 2009 released her first solo CD Tag.[3]

Kaegi's media company was an early adopter of video content for the web. She conceived, produced and hosted one of the first interactive live webcast series from New York's Knitting Factory called "Cyber Cabaret", which received "Best live web cast" awards from Yahoo! and CNET in 1998[citation needed], then went on to produce and promote live and on-demand webcasts for the fashion brands and magazines Style and Elle covering runway shows from New York, Paris and Milan.[citation needed]
