Stage at Main St and Broadway St
Redwood City, California

SF Bay Area based vocalist Kat Parra has leapt beyond the boundaries of the typical latin jazz singer. With her thirst for the exploration of world rhythms and tonalities, she has developed a style of music that encompasses sounds that both transcend and bend the stereotypical definition of latin jazz. She has incorporated not only afro-cuban music, but also added afro-peruvian, middle eastern, south american folklore as well as nueva trova. Most interestingly, she has also been developing, along with her musical director Murray Low, new arrangements of Sephardic music–the music of the Spanish Jews sung in the dying language of Ladino.

Kat sings fluently in English, Spanish and Portuguese as well. With this multi-lingual and multi-musical experience, Kat Parra is able to transport her audiences to an exciting and vibrant journey of world and latin music.

Kat performs as part of the new Redwood City "Jazz on Mondays" series on an outdoor stage in downtown Redwood City, at Main and Broadway Streets.

The band includes Masuru Koga (woodwinds), Murray Low (piano), Paul Van Wageningen (Drums) and Peter Barshay (bass).
