Brazilian Guitarist and Vocalist, Téka on March 27

Téka is an artist with roots firmly planted in the traditions of Brazilian music…the samba, bossa nova,and choro. From an early age, she fell under the spell of American jazz and began soaking

up the sounds of the jazz greats of the day.

Today, her music has become a fusion of Brazil’s sensual rhythms and harmonies with the sophistication and improvisation of jazz, which she calls New Bossa. After graduating in Music Education from Sao Paulo University, Téka studied at Boston’s Berklee College of Music. She has performed and recorded with Brazilian legends Hermeto Pascoal, Gilberto Gil, Flora Purim and Airto Moreira. Her first CD, Garden Planet, was original music with an environmental theme.

April 10: Black Market Reverie with their “speak easy” jazz, a mix of jazz, classic French pop and Americana.

April 24: Renowned Soul, Jazz and R&B vocalist, Raffia Thomas brings stunning vocals and soulful vibes along with her quintet.
