Join Kat Parra and her group for a unique blend of musical idioms. Featuring some of the best latin jazz/jazz musicians in the Greater Bay Area: Paul Van Wageningen (drums), Peter Barshay (bass), Masaru Koga (woodwinds) and Murray Low (piano).

The concert will include songs from her newly released CD, "Azucar de Amor".

Kat 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.

Enjoy a unique blend of world music and jazz at Santa Cruz's premier jazz venue, the Kuumbwa. Dinner is also available earlier with a special offering from the chef!
