PASIÓN is a multi-faceted, multi-linguistic expression of Latin and World Jazz mixed with exotic grooves.
A familiar face in Los Angeles’s premier clubs, Solvei’s music represents a sophisticated form of jazz expression and has been recognized with a Los Angeles Music Award nomination, a World Music Award, and an endorsement from Amnesty International for her song “Leonard Peltier.” The world-class band ZumaSol will add to Solvei’s flash and international flare for this festive evening. ZumaSol includes Brad Strickland on guitar, Chris Longo on bass, Brandon Covelli on keys, and Aaron Winters on drums. Percussionist Will Clipman, six-time Grammy nominee, also will join the lineup as a very special guest.
A native of Norway, where she is a household name, and one of Europe’s top recording artists, Solvei’s voice is well known to jazz aficionados and other music lovers. Her music is frequently played on Southland radio stations K-JAZZ, KCRW, and KPFK as well as across Europe.
Tickets are available online at centerstagetheater.tix.com, by phone, and at the theater box office. Pre-purchase is highly encouraged.
