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.
Three causes direct the evocative sound of Vera Maia, a group of unruly and
imaginative search, although contained within the boundaries of the melodic
song. Adrian Sage's trumpet brings a sinuous flow, accompanied with sober pulse
of guitar and Indian tabla. It's a huge contribution because it is very unusual in
the Chilean environtment. When it appears, the Vera's voice brings a clarity that
contains the music of the trio in a warm invitation, close but mysterious.―
