Corina Bartra, originally from Peru and living in New York. She has recorded four Afro Latin jazz CD's and two meditation (Chanting) ones. Her versatily is impressive. Her Afro World jazz music delves in Afro Peruvian grooves and music mainly from the coastal region of Peru. Her mother was born in the Peruvian Amazon and a couple of Corina's tunes have a jungle inspiration like for example 'sol Azabache.'(Bambu Sun) and Rhythm of Life (Travelog). Her music has also a strong Brazilean component which she blends in a personal and creative way. Jazz Time magazine has found a tinge of Tania Maria scatting style in her own. Corina who loves Cuban cha cha has composed an inventive and grooving one in 'Guajira Son.'(Bambu Sun). Corina has assembled a dynamite cast of musicians in all her CD's including this new release 'Bambu Sun.'Rufus Reid flows with mastery in Corina''s original 'Magia y Ritmo Ancestral.' Vince Cherico is astounding in interpreting her music and some standards included on this new CD 'Bambu Sun.' Cliff Korman's piano is lyrically beautiful and triving. In Bambu Sun one can hear on a couple of tracks to cajon players in rhythmic counterpoint. Perico Diaz, the main cajon player is also originally from Peru. This CD is a great contribution to latin jazz, world jazz and all daring and creative music as well.
