Three magnificent New York Latina jazz artists come together for a very special evening celebrating Women’s History Month. Nicaraguan-American percussionist Annette Aguilar and her acclaimed band, String Beans, demonstrate their virtuosity and versatility with a wide range of material including music from Brazil. Returning to the US after a long residency in Paris, the Dominican / Puerto Rican-American vocalist Jenn Jade Ledesna, accompanied by her trio, brings her high-energy and effervescent style to standards and originals. The Peru-born saxophonist / composer Laura Andrea Leguía and her ensemble fuse Afro-Peruvian folklore and modern orchestration to give audiences a new sound: one that is at once African, Andean and American.
