ELIANE CORREA’S CUBAN QUINTET:Sun 11th Aug, 5pm

Biography

ELIANE CORREA’S CUBAN QUINTET: Sun 11th Aug, 5-6.15pm @ the GUILDHALL 

Lineup: Eliane Corea (keys and MD), Dunia Correa (lead vocals), Landy Diaz (trombone), Frank Portuondo (bass), Oscar Martinez (percussion)
Latina powerhouse pianist Eliane Correa performs with a five-piece band assembled especially for Brecon Jazz, playing music from right across her career.

Eliane’s unique sound equally reflects her Latin heritage and the London musical melting pot experience. Her lyrics make a point of highlighting the female experience from a place of celebration, liberation and empowerment; changing the gender narrative in Latin music from the traditionally male-centric approach is an important part of her vision. Although now a familiar face on the Capital’s Latin/Jazz scene many will remember Eliane’s  past electrifying appearance with the Maite Hontele South American Ensemble in 2018.
What they say
Elements of soul, funk, rock and jazz nod to Hancock, Havana and the melting pot that is London. Utterly maravilloso.” (5 star JazzWise)

“The beauty of Brecon is the sheer variety of music on offer, covering all jazz styles from trad to the avant garde. Also the way that the Festival takes over the whole town still makes it something truly special” Jazz Mann 2008

"Whatever your strategy, Brecon Jazz delivers, thanks to its geography and programming"John L Walters. The Guardian 2011

"Yes, it’s had its ups and downs, every bit as dramatic as the Beacons which rise above it, but the Brecon Jazz Festival has learned some tough survival skills as a result".  Peter Bacon, UK Jazz News 2018

"Virtual BJF2020 - Considering the obstacles associated with the pandemic, it was the triumph of organisation and technical expertise over limitation – so much so that while one might have wanted the real thing, its substitute may well develop a life of its own".  Nigel Jarrett, Wales Arts Review 2020

"The classic Brecon weekend is 9-11 August but there are several other excellent events around the festival this year including family jazz and dance on the first weekend and a film and jazz focus on the last". Tim Dickeson, Jazzwise 2024
