A five-time Juno Award winner, Jane Bunnett has turned her bands and recordings into showcases for the finest musical talent from Canada, the United States and Cuba.
With Maqueque, Bunnett has created something new and phenomenal in the world of jazz. What started out five years ago as a project to record and mentor young brilliant Cuban female musicians has become one of the top groups on the North American jazz scene. In the last year, they have played in major jazz festivals including Newport and Monterey, were featured on NPR's Jazz Night in America, were nominated for a Grammy Award for their newest release, Oddara and, most recently, were voted as one the top 10 jazz groups by the prestigious DownBeat magazine's critics poll.
Maqueque are: Jane Bunnett, soprano saxophone & flute; Melvis Santa, vocals and percussion; Mary Paz, congas and vocals; Dánae Olano, piano; Tailin Marrero, acoustic and electric bass; and Yissy García, drums.
