Alon Nechushtan

Alon Nechushtan Quartet featuring vocalist Sara Serpa and rhythm powerhouse Francois and Louis Moutin will play a soulful program of music inspired by the voices of ordinary people around the globe who make extraordinary decisions : leaving home for a better future, migration, immigration, roaming between original jazz, blues and contemporary.

“ A talent to watch, with a surfeit of ideas, an unbridled spirit and bold, two-fisted sense of Architecture" - (Down Beat magazine), Pianist Alon Nechushtan's music adventures has brought him to far corners such as the Yokohama Festival Japan with his contemporary compositions, The Sao-Paolo Brazil Jewish Music Festival with his Quintet Talat, Manila with his concerto for the Philippine Symphony Orchestra and The Tel Aviv New Music Biennale with his Compositions for Ensemble Music Nova. Native of Rishon Le Zion, Israel, Alon has performed in venues such as Carnegie Hall, Central Park Summer Stage, The Blue Note Jazz Club and Kennedy Center frequently with his projects as a band leader and composer.

A native from Lisboa, Portuguese Vocalist Sara Serpa is a singer, composer, improviser, who through her practice and performance, explores the use of the voice as an instrument. Serpa has been working in the field of jazz, improvised and experimental music, since moving to New York in 2008. Literature, film, visual arts, nature and history inspire Serpa in the creative process and development of her music. Described by the New York Times as “a singer of silvery poise and cosmopolitan outlook,” and by the JazzTimes magazine as “a master of wordless landscapes,” Serpa started her recording and performing career with jazz luminaries such as Grammy-nominated pianist, Danilo Perez, Guggenheim and MacArthur Fellow pianist, Ran Blake, and Greg Osby.
