Alex Cuba
Alex Cuba
He’s toured his trio around the world, released four albums and earned 18 awards and nominations, including 2 Junos and 3 Latin Grammys. Cuban born Alex Cuba’s groove-laden, multi-culti sound is characterized by smoky vocals, harmonies and adept guitar work with magnetic hooks; tunes that marry the rolling sway of Afro-Latin rhythms and the bittersweet melodies of Cuba with jazz for a new Latin soul sound. His latest album, Healer, includes bilingual duets with key Canadian and US artists.
Lynn Olagundoye
Lynn Olagundoye
In an age of increasingly technological and synthetic music, Calgary singer-songwriter Lynn Olagundoye is something to be treasured. Wise beyond her 25 years, Olagundoye has a perfect voice for soul and R&B, and marries it to a sound that incorporates the best of funk, jazz, Afrobeat, roots-reggae and vintage pop. With her precocious talent and knack for writing catchy melodies and appealing lyrics, it wasn’t long before a recording contract materialized. The result, 2006’s African Violet, is the perfect calling card for a wonderful, fresh-sounding singer looking forward to a great career. Her JazzFest debut is your chance to say “I heard her when.”
“A flawless, undiscovered and world class singer . . . Miss O and her band are pure magic.” –Winnipeg Free Press
“Prepare to be wowed by Lynn Olagundoye.” –Calgary Sun
