San Francisco vocalist Kat Parra is in town this weekend performing at Bake’s Place.
FRIDAY, MARCH 28
KAT PARRA QUARTET
Dinner Time: 7:00pm
Performance Time: 8:00 – 10:30pm
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.
