Kalia Vandever is a trombonist, composer, and educator living in Brooklyn, NY. Her debut album, "In Bloom" was released in May 2019 and features all original compositions. We're thrilled to be part of her northeast tour. For this show, her quartet will include guitarist Lee Meadvin, bassist Nick Dunston, and drummer Connor Parks.
This show will be Mandorla Music's first offering in Q Division's Studios' main room, a wonderful space with a great vibe and excellent acoustics for an intimate concert.
Kalia has performed in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, Walt Disney Concert Hall, Preservation Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, The Jazz Gallery, The Blue Whale, Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, SMOKE Jazz Club, the Blue Note, and the Rose Theater at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Kalia has played with the following musicians whom she admires greatly: Ingrid Jensen, Herbie Hancock, Tyshawn Sorey, Darcy James Argue's Secret Society, Fabian Almazan, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Joel Ross, Maria Grand, and others. She's also performed on Saturday Night Live with Demi Lovato and on Samantha Bee's Full Frontal with Lizzo.
