Featuring beautifully seductive melodies and infectious rhythms, renowned Brazilian vocalist/guitarist Téka sings with a sensual lyricism and a rich & velvety tone. Her guitar playing is equally enchanting as she swinging grooves from her extensive repertoire.
Joining Téka will be saxphonist/flutist/percussionist Robert Kyle, who had become widely known for his rich warm sound and the passion that he brings to any musical encounter. Robert has played with a long list of the biggest names in Jazz and contemporary music, has a lifelong love affair with the music of Brazil and has become one of her most constant musical companions.
Rounding out the trio is the wonderful pianist Alyse Korn. A native of Miami, Florida, Alyse played with many of the top salsa & Jazz bands there while before traveling west to get her Master’s degree in performance from CalArts. Since completing her degree there, she has become one of the busiest pianists on the West Coast’s Latin & Brazilian Jazz scene. A gifted soloist and accompanist, she is a perfect musical fit for this trio.
Téka and her trio perform with authenticity, energy and charm, and their music always makes one feel just a little closer to Brazil, home of the Bossa Nova, Samba and remarkable musicians like Téka.”
