Event Details


The sounds and styles of vocalist/composer Jocelyn Medina cross cultures,
creeds and continents. Her original music fuses elements of Brazil, Spain,
Africa and India with jazz harmonies, neo-soul/funk grooves and
adventurous improvisations.

“Medina offers the jazz listener a musical journey that takes the
foundation of Latin and Jazz idioms and successfully redefines the
experience with thought provoking lyrics and vocal abilities far beyond
the norm. Medina uses her voice as an instrument and storyteller, and
invites the listener to delve into the corners of their mind with lyrics
that reflect life and human conditions…” (Constance Tucker, All About
Vocals)

“…(her) seductive voice transforms each live performance into an authentic
multicultural experience…demonstrating her remarkable finesse in the
renovation of musical styles and genres.” (La Mundial, Spain)

Born into a family of singers, Jocelyn determined her identity as a
musician at the tender age of five through choirs and piano lessons. She
later pursued opera work at Stanford University, earned a Bachelors from
Berklee College of Music, and a Masters in Vocal Jazz Performance from
Manhattan School of Music.

Between her formal studies, Jocelyn spent 4 years living and performing in
Madrid, Spain, where she recorded her first full-length CD of original
compositions, "The Journey Begun." Further musical explorations brought
Jocelyn to Ghana, West Africa, as well as to Salvador, Brazil. In 2005 she
returned to the United States to pursue her Masters studies, and in 2011
released her second album of original work, "We Are Water," combining her
jazz and Latin heritage with the rhythms and flavors of African and
Brazilian music. Her most recent travels brought Jocelyn to Mumbai, India,
where she was exposed to new vocal and instrumental aesthetics, elements
that resonate throughout the material on her newly recorded album “Common
Ground,” blending jazz with the world music styles of India and Africa.

As a bandleader, she has toured with jazz ensembles at venues and
festivals throughout the United States, Europe, Asia and South America.
Outside of performing, Jocelyn works as a voice teacher and educator,
giving classes and workshops in voice and vocal jazz.  Currently based in
Brooklyn, Jocelyn plays regularly throughout the New York City area
showcasing her compositions, and curates and hosts a weekly vocal jazz
concert series and jam session at Rue B in lower Manhattan. In addition to
her original repertoire, she sings, plays percussion and arranges for her
Brazilian/World-Jazz project, sings and drums and with the NJ-based Rhythm
Monsters West African ensemble, and is a member of the classical Brooklyn
Conservatory Chorale.

Jocelyn returns to Club Bonafide to showcase songs and arrangements from
“Common Ground,” featuring core members of her recoding ensemble Art
Hirahara on piano, Pete McCann on guitar, Evan Gregor on bass, and Mark
Ferber on drums, in anticipation of her upcoming album release in spring,
2017.
