Breezy, brilliant bossanova from a Brazilian singer with real pedigree – a peer of João Bosco and Torquinho.
This Brazilian singer/guitarist is a born samba, MPB and choro performer whose style evokes the classics of the bossa nova tradition. Imagine a gossamer curtain falling around floating chords from a nylon string guitar, and you approach the tone of Setton’s hypnotic vocal in a band setting.
Anna will be performing songs from her 2018 debut album.

Canadian Chelsea McBride’s compositions bustle with a looping energy, evoking the pace of city life.
Saxophonist Chelsea McBride (Canada) brings her harmonically layered, infectiously energetic work to a big band setting under the auspices of Jenna Cave’s Divergence Jazz Orchestra. Her debut release took a modernist, orchestral approach to jazz, charting the journey of a daydreaming commuter – a bustling, polyrhythmic jostle of interlocking instrumentation, alive with the energy and distraction of city life.

Lakecia Benjamin is a badass, in the best possible sense of the word
This New York City native saxophonist/bandleader is more than just a player, she’s a vocalist and a lyricist, and a cross-cultural force of nature who has played consistently with the greatest jazz, funk, hip hop and pop talent. She’s a natural artist capable of emotive bop through to dance crazed funk!
