About This Show
Four-time JUNO Award-winner, two-time GRAMMY nominee, Canadian soprano saxophonist-flautist Jane Bunnett is recognized both for her artistry and her improvisational daring. Jane's exploration and then immersion in Afro-Cuban rhythms and melodies has expressed the universality of music; and her ability to embrace and showcase the rhythms and culture of Cuba has been groundbreaking. Jane's most recent recording and touring group, Maqueque, consists of Jane with five dynamic young Cuban women instrumentalists and composers. The band, which is both a folkloric and jazz fusion, is turning heads internationally.View the Performer's Website
