Directed by Dan Gailey
Vocalist, guitarist and composer Camila Meza has brought a sound full of warmth, intricacy and rhythmic clarity to the New York jazz scene ever since her arrival from Santiago, Chile in 2009. Inspired by jazz, South American music and popular American songs of many eras and genres, she has been hailed by The New York Times as “a bright young singer and guitarist with an ear for music of both folkloric and pop intention.”
She will perform with the KU Jazz Ensemble I led by Dan Gailey, director of Jazz Studies at KU. The ensemble has received numerous DownBeat Student Music Awards, including Best College Jazz Ensemble in 2015 and the Outstanding Performance Award in 2017.
