YOHAM ORTIZ YOHAM ORTIZ

YOHAM ORTIZ is a composer, guitarist and vocalist having a conversation about environmental awareness and personal growth. A musician with an open ear to the world, Yoham’s compositions share stories about caring for our planet and each other.

Yoham’s performances are driven by his emotive vocals and energetic finger-style guitar playing. His virtuosic guitar technique fuses Classical, Jazz, Caribbean and South American styles including the little known Dominican Carabine. He sings in English and in Spanish.

“To perform solo acoustic guitar is a bold statement in a time when audiences expect big, multi- dimensional sounds. Yoham's talent as a musician creates a heartfelt ambiance that makes an immediate and intimate connection with his listeners.”- World Music Central

Yoham transcends the listener to the magic of experiencing our commonalities. “Go defy your odds” is the first line of Yoham’s song “Uncompromising.” A song that encourages one to reach for the self you envision. “Trees” is a contemplative song about experiencing and appreciating trees and the breath of life. “Baiao Blues” is a lament dedicated to refugees. “Carabine del Emigrante” tells the story of a person who has to immigrate to a foreign land because their land has been depleted of the resources it once provided. The song alludes to the idea of leaving something you love because it does not offer what it once did- that can be a person a thing, or a place.“Waterfalls” is an instrumental inspired on the graceful strength and stages of waterfalls.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
