San Pedro Square Market Live Music: Join SPSM and San Jose Jazz for a live performance with Masha Campagne & Caminhos Cruzados on Friday, May 1st, 2015 @ 7:00pm in the market plaza.
Masha Campagne, an award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer, combines captivating vocals with Brazilian flavor for a stunning Latin jazz experience. Since her arrival on the Bay Area jazz scene in the early 90s, she has performed at a variety of venues, including Yoshi’s, Kuumbwa, and the Monterey Jazz Festival. Fresh off the release of her internationally acclaimed project Like Water, Like Air, she continues her long-time collaboration with pianist/composer Weber Iago, adding guitarist Guinga and harmonica/vibes player Hendrik Meurkens into the folds. Campagne’s sound achieves a vocal mastery that “blend[s] the wistfulness of Astrud Gilberto with the robust liquidity of Flora Purim,”(JazzTimes) and “display[s] a rare combination of sophistication and sincerity.” (San Jose Mercury News)
