Jazz with Gabriela Martina
7:30 PM
Malden Senior Center
Description:
Gabriela Martina performs selections from her latest project, Homage to Grämlis, a deeply personal project that tells the story of Martina’s upbringing on a beautiful dairy farm in Switzerland. It includes traditional Swiss yodel sounds, cow bells, accordion and alphorn fused with all the musical influences (Gospel/R’n’B/Soul/Jazz etc) she has been exposed to during her 10 years of living as a freelance musician here in the United States. Martina sings a delightful mixture of Swiss yodeling, R&B, funk, and jazz. She weaves story with passion for home and humanity, hinting of bucolic farms of Switzerland but with an edge of urban sophistication. Martina is a humanitarian who is passionate about learning about other cultures, helping to develop a sense for community, and fighting inequality and racism. The concert will also include a slide show of pictures from Martina's beloved country of origin - Switzerland.

Martina will be joined by her band: Kyle Miles (bass), Ben Rosenblum (accordion), Maxim Lubarsky (piano), Vancil Cooper (drums), and Jussi Reijonen (fretted and fretless guitar). Nadia Washington (vocals) and Gus Sebring (on alphorn) will also join the band for this performance. uality and racism.
