Singer-songwriter Roxana Amed and pianist Emilio Solla hail from Argentina, but have recently taken up residency in the United States—Amed in Miami and Solla in Brooklyn. Their respective boundary-crossing music reflects their personal journeys, drawing from traditional Argentinian music and American jazz alike.
Amed’s voice is rich and lyrical, and she showcases well on the song “Nosotros Dos” in the video below.
Solla has been leading his large ensemble La Inestable de Brooklyn for over a decade now, concocting deeply-textured music that marries tango with contemporary post-bop improvisation. Check out the videos of the group playing at The Jazz Standard a few years ago.
The Jazz Gallery is pleased the present Ms. Amed and Mr. Solla for the first time on our stage this Wednesday, January 20th. Come out for an intimate evening of songs from Argentina and beyond.
