Corina Bartra live, tonight, in NY

Catch a magical music mix!
She has appeared to acclaim at Lincoln Center, the Kennedy Center, the United Nations, and in Berlin and Peru. Her version of a Jimi Hendrix standard has been hailed as “celestial.” Now, Corina Bartra is bringing her unique Afro-Peruvian Jazz and other Brazilian Jazz mix tunes to Jazz Tuesdays at the John Birks Gillespie Auditorium in the New York Bahá'í Center (53 East 11th Street between University Place & Broadway) tonight, Sept. 30. There will be 2 shows at 8:00 and 9:30 p.m.

Singing in Spanish, English and Portuguese, Corina will front Azu project, which fuses jazz, Afro Peruvian music and also includes Brazilian jazz and new Latin trends tunes. She also assembled a stellar group of musicians to record the latest of her several pioneering Afro Jazz CDs. Joe Ross on his latest review speaks of her music as being magical and having an organic sound of cross-cultural fusion.

An uncompromising artist and a soulful musical adventurer, Corina has a master's degree in vocal performance from Queen's College and also a percussion degree from Mannes College of Music at Long Island University. A native of Peru, she lives and works in New York and gigs in both places and in Europe. Corina's song “Latino Blues” has just charted in Latin Beat's Latin Hit Parade, the latest accomplishment in a career that has seen her record with top-ranked musicians like Kirk Lightsey, Santi Debriano, Vince Cherico and Thomas Chapin.

Admission is 15.00, $10.00 for students.
Tickets will be sold at the door, or call 212-222-5159 for reservations and information.
