Boiler House Jazz opens it's Spring 2021 virtual season with the first time unique pairing of violinist Yaeko Miranda Elmaleh, who is mostly known for fronting her own band in the Klezmer/Roma musical spectrum and Sonya Rae Taylor, who is primarily known for fronting her own blues and soul fusion band, Yaeko and Sonya have recently been getting together to play music they both love, inspired by Django Reinhardt's Paris based Hot Club de France, a group Django formed with his musical cohort, violinist Stephane Grappelli. That group debuted in 1934 and was among the first to play jazz that featured guitar as a lead instrument.
Yaeko & Sonya Rae believe that music is the expression of emotion, and they wish to take you on a cultural experience filtered through their different backgrounds and training. Their interpretations of jazz manouche (gypsy jazz), French, Latin, blues, and Jewish music are richly evocative of the sources from where they came, yet sound fresh and inventive,
Performing in English, French, and Spanish, the duo draws upon passionate styles from around the globe with their own twist. They come together harmoniously under the light of the ... "Caravan Moon".
Yaeko & Sonya Rae's rendition of "J'Attendrai"
The duo will be performing from the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation in Waltham which will be streamed at https://youtu.be/Dro8LuRPhMI
