The Studio@620 invites you to travel to Iberia with a fantastic local vocalist, Ona Kirei as she performs songs from the Iberian Peninsula as well as original jazz-infused compositions. Ona has a wide repertoire and sings in Spanish, Portuguese, Catalan, Basque, and Galician in addition to English. Joining her will be Pablo Arencibia on piano, Alejandro Arenas on bass, and Mark Feinman (of La Lucha fame) on drums. This will be Ona's third performance at The Studio and each time we hear rave reviews from the audience. Come share this magical evening!
Ona Kirei is a singer, composer, and arranger from Barcelona, based now in the USA.
She built a career in Europe by winning international and national prizes, playing in important festivals and venues in Spain, France, and the UK, releasing 2 albums as a leader, and collaborating with other fellow musicians from different countries. Now she brings her music to the USA.
In this concert, she will perform Iberian influenced jazz and neo-soul music, singing in the different languages of the Iberian Peninsula, as well as in English, arranging traditional and popular tunes of this magical place in the South of Europe she comes from, and also playing some of her compositions.
