On the heels of their year-long Canada 150 project Mimosa is broadening their search for female jazz composers to countries beyond Canada. They will be presenting their own new originals as well as music by Esperanza Spalding and Jane Bunnett.
Mimosa will play the Arts Centre in Sechelt April 21 at 8pm.
The Vancouver quintet draws on jazz, Brazilian sambas, French ‘60s pop and cabaret music to concoct its own unique sound: gorgeous melodies, quirky lyrics, incredible groove and sky-high improvisations.
The band is made up of Rebecca Shoichet, vocals, Anna Lumiere, (piano and accordion), Karen Graves (sax, flute and vocals), Adam Thomas (bass) and Bernie Arai (drums). Although every member of Mimosa is also active on the Canadian music scene in many other groups, the band has been together for almost two decades and has developed a unique performance that will take you on an unforgettable journey into time and sound.
They will also be doing a live recording of this special evening. Limited seating so get your tickets early: $20 at WOW Gallery, MELOmania, Strait Music and share-there.com.
