Vera Maia Vera Maia

Macarena Rocha, singer (lightweight soprano) and composer in her VĚRA MAIA (2012– actually) trio/quartet of indian tabla, trumpet and guitar & vocals. Her music fuses jazz with traditional ethnic music from the East and the Latin American healing-chants of Icarus, from the jungle. She's accompanied by Dhani Grimaldo (tabla) and Adrian Sage (trumpet) on Maianthemus (2016). By Juan Elgueda (tabla), Alejandro Pino (trumpet & flugelhorn), Cristian Gallardo (sax) sometimes on stage in a special concert mode “Hip Soul Jazzy”. And now by Benjamín Saiz (drums & percussion), Javier Aguilar (bansuri & ethnic flutes) and Matias Donoso (bass & effects), this's the new Samurai Quartet; developing the HipFolk, RockSoul and EthnicRap style. Also she's natural therapist, multi-artist, actress of cinema and theater. She also composes music for these media.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
