Join Vocalist Kat Parra as she performs with her World/Latin Jazz group. Joining cat will be Masaru Koga (woodwinds), Murray Low (piano), Peter Barshay (bass) and Curt Moore (drums). She performs at one of Oakland's best casual music venues, Disco Volante.

Kat is the recipient of the "Best Latin Jazz Vocalist" for 2010 and 2008 as part of the worldwide "Latin Jazz Corner" association. 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. In addition, she has also developed new renditionns of Sephardic music–the music of the Spanish Jews sung in the dying language of Ladino- and produced an entire CD of this music, "Dos Amantes".

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.
