Julie Campiche

Harpist Julie Campiche’s work is an on-going process of musical innovation. Through research and experimentation she has developed the use of electronic effects that enhance the scope of her improvisational work. She has a very personnel technique and her own musical language. Julie introduced her harp into the world of jazz and contemporary music in a very organic way. She now performs in numerous European clubs and festivals on a regular basis. Through her innate curiosity and desire for new experience she plays with groups that have diverse instrumentation and esthetics. Be it theatre or contemporary performance, octets or duos, compositions or free-style improvisation, Julie infuses her music with an urgent fragility

cafeAmaro

cafeAmaro = Diane Peters+Apo( tech) Diane Peters - harp and vocals Andrea Ponzoni - electronica and keys (LA VERSIONE ITALIANA, SOTTO RIPORTATA ) Born out of an improvisation duo of d.j. and harp, cafeAmaro has now become an album of all original music, and an articulated electro-acoustic project with no boundaries of genre, floating between ambient, soundscape, electronica, nu-jazz and pop. A dreamlike journey of harp, voce and electronica. The live performance is accompanied by faded random super 8 images, giving a special atmosphere to the nocturnal lounge sound.    “cafeAmaro is a successful combination of art between video, elettronica music, voice and harp , poetry and emotion in the moment

Cara Auratus

Jazz is Cara's passion. It's an aural art form, one that can't be learned fully from books or charts. The best teacher is the sound itself - this was her primary mentor. Old 78s and LPs and performances. She began singing in Texas and Louisiana while still too young to legally get into the bars. Old enough to connect with the music, vamp with a tune, collaborate with a quartet and deliver a song that audiences loved. Always drawn to the incredible era of early jazz from the 20s and 30s, her primary influences include Alberta Hunter, Mildred Bailey, the Boswell Sisters, Anita O'Day, Chris Connor, Hoagy Carmichael and Jack Teagarden

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
