Yamile Burich & the Jazz Ladies // Jazz at Morán

Jazz en Morán continues into September. The greatest jazz musicians of the local scene will be presenting original music each Thursday. This week Morán welcomes saxaphonist Yamile Burich and her Jazz Ladies, an all-woman quintet composed of Yamile Burich on the sax (obviously), Patricia Grinfeld on the guitar, Diana Arias on the contra bass, Analía Ferronato on drums, and Carolina Cohen banging the congos. Yamile Burich has developed her musical career in Buenos Aires, Havana, London, and New York and with her Jazz Ladies formed the very first all-female jazz group in the history of Argentina.

FRIDAY 20

Mermelada de Morcilla at Lucille with Malibu

Malibu was born with a need to explore all the modern and vintage sounds of rock, and this Friday they’re celebrating the release of their debut self-titled album. Mermelada de Morcilla will be opening the show with his special bandita + burbujitas format. That’s “little band and little bubbles” and I’m not quite sure what it means, but surely if you go, then you will know.
