BARCELONA SINGER AND COMPOSER, ONA KIREI, WILL PERFORM FOR THE FIRST TIME AT THE BLUE BAMBOO CENTER OF THE ARTS.
Ona Kirei presents her US album debut featuring a diverse collection of original songs and arrangements. The title track 'Mirage' provides the framework for the concept of the album. With songs like 'Alchemy', 'Fata Morgana', and 'The Peacocks', the music speaks to the personal search for truth, and the desire to move forward to a place of healing and love. In songs like 'Letras A mi Nombre', Kirei expresses optimism towards the personal transformation that comes with life changes.
Stylistically, 'Mirage' pushes the boundaries of Jazz. Kirei infuses her Spanish/Catalan roots with a multitude of cultural influences she acquired in her travels around the world to create her unique sound.
Along with the music from Mirage, she will perform a set of her duo project 'Orilla', with the bass player and producer Alejandro Arenas. Even though a voice and bass duo might seem very minimalistic, the result of these two powerful musicians is a performance full of energy, raw emotion, and elegance, that captivates every audience with their magic.
Vocalist, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Ona Kirei has an exceptional ability to move the listener's soul with her expressiveness and virtuosity. Her music pushes stylistic boundaries that showcase remarkable compositional and arranging skills while displaying a profound emotional connection that makes it readily accessible to any audience. Her life experience, cultural influences, determination, and deepness, are reflected in her unique voice.
Kirei was born in Barcelona, but she's quite literally a citizen of the world having lived in Spain, India, United Kingdom, and Austria, among other places. She has performed to critical acclaim in venues and festivals across Europe and the United States, winning several national and international awards along the way.
Ona Kirei will perform at the Blue Bamboo along with John O'Leary on piano, Mark Feinman on drums, and Alejandro Arenas on bass (aka La Lucha). The last one is also a half of her duo project Orilla, that she will be also presenting in Orlando on Saturday, October 15th.
