The fusion between Jazz and Flamenco is undoubtedly one of the most exciting artistic expressions currently emerging from Europe.
The result, in the case of The New York Bojaira Project, is an original and engaging fusion, blending jazz improvisation with the excitement of flamenco, rhythms, dance and singing to create a powerful combination of energy and subtlety on stage, taking audiences on a fascinating multi-cultural excursion.
Andalusian pianist Jesús Hernández’s creation of The New York Bojaira Project stems from his deep understanding of flamenco combined with his own personal and natural musical language. Drawing from flamenco and jazz as well as his experiences in Classical, Caribbean and Brazilian music he joins Spanish artists such as the avant-garde Flamenco singer Enrique Morente, and saxophone and flute player Jorge Pardo in pioneering this nascent musical style.
