Kat Parra performs her unique blend of music from the Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, Afro-Peruvian, Sephardic and Jazz idioms as part of the grand opening of the new Foster City library.
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 recently, she has also explored new jazz interpretations of Sephardic music – the music of the Spanish Jews sung in the dying language of Ladino. Her third album, Dos Amantes, is scheduled for an imminent release.
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.
Joining Kat will be Murray Low (piano), Peter Barshay (bass), and Paul Van Wageningen (drums).
