CAMARON DE LA VEGA AND FRIENDS - THE JAZZ SESSIONS
Date Saturday 27th April
Camaron De La Vega and Friends - A Musical Journey - Blending Manouche swing with American jazz, Latin greats, Spanish Flamenco and Eastern music, creating a fabulous musical joyride.
Camaron De La Vega is a Brisbane based guitarist, Q-Song Awards (Aus) nominee and Vanda and Young International Song Competition finalist (worldwide) who specialises in Flamenco, Manouche and Jazz. A highly-respected musician, his talent of combining the deep groove and rhythmic intricacy of Flamenco with the harmony and phrasing of Jazz and improvised music has taken him all around the world, seeing him perform in Spain, England, Paris, Ireland, Thailand, Indonesia and at the prestigious Montreaux Jazz Festival.
From his passion of exploring the rhythms and harmonies of music from around the world, Camaron has now formed a collaboration with Miranda Deutsch (Guitar) and Stu Barry (Bass) to create a Gypsy jazz extravaganza.
Keeping the jazz hot, the swing swayin' and the beat pumping, they combine the harmony and phrasing of Gypsy jazz and improvised music with the deep groove and rhythmic intricacy of Flamenco. Camaron is constantly searching for those moments that bring the magic to the audience through his guitar.
Come enjoy a smorgasbord of delicious sound. Like a warm afternoon breeze spreading the sweet fragrance of romance to all who enter its path, be drawn in, and swept away..
