The New York Bojaira Project$15
The fusion between Jazz and Flamenco is one of the most exciting musical and artistic expressions emerging in the world today. The result, in the case of The New York Bojaira Project, is a powerful combination of energy and subtlety on stage. An original and versatile fusion, blending the depth and intensity of jazz harmony and improvisation, with the excitement of flamenco rhythms.
The core quartet is comprised of a combination of two highly regarded Spanish musicians from the home of flamenco, Andalusia, pianist Jesús Hernández and singer/flute player Alfonso Cid; and two long time veterans of the New York jazz scene, bassist Tim Ferguson and drummer Mark Holen.
Since its inception in December of 2013 the New York Bojaira Project has appeared in many important venues in New York City and the surrounding area including: Jazz at Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub, Drom, and the legendary Deer Head Inn, as well as performing extensively at festivals, theatres and clubs in Europe including Festival del Lago (Atarfe, Granada), Festival Jazz Chinchilla (Albacete), Festival Jazz Xábia (Alicante), Auditorio Box Sevilla, Festival Jazz Tardorde (Lérida), Festival de Jazz de Granada, Festival de El Ejido, Sala Clamores (Madrid), Café El Despertar (Madrid), Café Babel (San Lorenzo del Escorial, Madrid), Festival Flamenco en la Frontera (Sevilla), Colegio de España at le Cité Universitaire (Paris), Château d’Áubiac, La Peniche l’Improviste Jazz, Club Bab-Ilo, Café A (Paris and Toulouse).
