About this Event

The fusion between Jazz and Flamenco is undoubtedly one of the most exciting artistic expressions currently emerging from Europe. The result, in the case of New Bojaira [Bo-hi-ra], is an original and engaging fusion,blending jazz improvisation with the excitement of flamenco rhythms and singing tocreate a powerful combination of energy and subtlety on stage, taking audiences on a fascinating multi-cultural excursion.

The core quartet is comprised of a combination of two highly regarded Spanish musicians from the home of flamenco, Andalusia, pianist Jesús Hernández and singer/flute player Alfonso Cid; and two long time veterans of the New York jazz scene, bassist Tim Ferguson and drummer Mark Holen. In addition, the band will join forces with virtuoso saxophonist Peter Brainin and the wonderful Flamenco dancer from Barcelona, Spain, Elisabet Torras.

New Bojaira releases a new album, Zorongo Blu. Featuring jazz legend Randy Brecker on the track titled "El Diablo Llama a Mi Puerta". New Bojaira’s debut release is a collection of original compositions and jazz standards with the addition of the traditional Spanish folk song Zorongo which, when given a bluesy jazz/flamenco treatment, becomes the vehicle for the band's unique virtuosity and is transformed into the album's title track.

“New Bojaira’s album is a classic celebration of the collision of all that is Moorish and Arabic in Spanish music with all that is African and American in Blues and Jazz.” Raul da Gama-Latin Jazz Network “… [Zororongo Blu] displays how adept and versatile the group is, how they can fit at home in multiple worlds without sounding like a parody of a distant genre.”
