Vocalist Kenia Ashby is renowned for her ability to translate the complex rhythms of her Brazilian homeland into jazzy creations that made her a star of the smooth jazz movement two decades ago. Kenia’s music continues to transcend geographic and musical boundaries. Throughout her storied recording career, Kenia has performed at national and international festivals from the Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival to the Bonaire Heineken Jazz Festival in the ABC Islands. She has collaborated not only with jazz icons but also with up and coming artists. She is equally enchanting performing standards by big names, works by contemporary composers and original material with her own lyrics and music composed by Antonio Adolfo and others.
See Kenia Ashby play at the Jazz Forum in Tarrytown, NY, on October 27!
