Junji Delfino

Born:

“Junji Delfino started singing at the age of four and by the age of ten her father, himself a renowned Filipino jazz musician and composer, was sneaking her into jazz clubs. It was here that Junji became infused with jazz ��" its melancholy yet exuberant love of life, its scatty sense of humour, its love of playful improvisation while remaining true to achingly beautiful melodies, its sudden switches from madcap to melancholy. All this can be found in the way Junji sings. Her voice teases you with its humour and moves you with its tenderness. And this is what makes Junji a true jazz singer.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
