Paula Shocron Paula Shocron

Pianist, composer, performer and educator, born in Rosario, and based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She was trained as a classical pianist, from the age of 5, and later studied Composition at Escuela de Música de la Universidad de Rosario (National University). Her musical activity was always focused on improvisation, going deeply in jazz tradition at first, and then opening her language to a more personal (free) music, even extending to other artistic disciplines, (dance, theatre, poetry, etc). Today she has more than 20 records as a leader or co-leader. The most popular “Tensegridad” with SLD Trio, (Germán Lamonega on bass and Pablo Díaz on drums), was released on the well-known Swiss label hatOLOGY and had excellent international reviews. On the other hand she also co-leads with other artists the independent label Nendo Dango Records. Albums like Cooperative Sound, (along with several artists from NY and co- produced with the organization Continuum Culture & Arts, Inc) Emptying the Self (with William Parker and Pablo Díaz), Geograficciones (along with Andrew Drury and other Argentine musicians) or Future Retrospection (together with Kristin Norderval and Pablo Díaz) were released on this label. As a dancer / performer, she trained with Lucas Condró, Agustina Sario, Matthieu Perpoint, Diana Szeimblum, Amparo González, Juan Onofri Barbato and Andrea Manso. She founded the project called IMUDA, (from 2010 to 2017), an interdisciplinary project that showed the need to investigate into the connections between dance and music

“When Werner X. Uehlinger, the founder of Hat Hut Records, was asked about a statement on why he liked Argentinian pianist Paula Shocron's music, the answer was clear, short and succinct: ‘The quality of surprise’ “…”Shocron has formed an original musical expression that is open, intuitive and free. She is still searching while acknowledging the musical achievements of the past and the values of tradition”… Jakob Baekgaard/ AAJ https://www.allaboutjazz.com/paula-shocron-paths-to-a-new-sound-paula-shocron-by-jakob-baekgaard.php

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
