Get acquainted with Peruvian singer and saxophone player Caroline Araoz and her delectable new track ‘Calma’.
The new song is the first track from an upcoming Latin-influenced jazz project crafted with an Afro Peruvian heart and soul.
Those of you with keen ears will recognise the song from Brazilian inspired jazz-house outfit Bah Samba, who originally released it in 2005.
Breathing new life into the track ‘Calma’ is revitalised by Araoz. Fitting into the Latin side of jazz, this re-imagination is underpinned with a festejo rhythm, a famous Peruvian music and dance form and crucial part of Afro Peruvian history. This gorgeous composition is just what you need to kick start the day.
The rising artist who currently lives in Spain studying at Berklee College of Music cites Esperanza Spalding, Wayne Shorter and Dexter Gordon as her musical inspirations. Last year she collaborated with legendary Peruvian singer-songwriter Susana Baca.
We can’t wait to hear what Aroaz has in store for us next.
Calma is out on 22/02 via BKO Productions. Pre-order here.
