Camila Meza is a rising star in the New York jazz scene and has been described by the New York Times as “a bright young singer and guitarist with an ear for music of both folkloric and pop intention”. A native from Santiago de Chile, Camila has gathered great attention from her colleagues, the media and audiences in Chile, New York and internationally, for being considered an outstanding singer, guitarist, composer, arranger and improviser, who has a very distinctive way of blending jazz with her wide musical world that includes latinamerican, brazilian, folk and pop elements.
With deep roots in jazz tradition and a unique way of approaching her songs, she creates musical landscapes that are full of color, interesting rhythms, deep melodies and soulful improvisations. She is equally skilled as a singer and guitarist, and she forms part of a reduced group of musicians that perform their instrument with great dexterity while maintaining a strong vocal presence. With three albums under her own name and having toured internationally in Europe, Center and Southamerica and The United States, Camila plans to record a new album at the end of 2014 that will feature her own material along with arrangements of influential songs. Stay tuned!
“A bright young singer and guitarist with an ear for music of both folkloric and pop intention, Camila Meza has connected with a strong peer group since moving to New York from her native Santiago, Chile, in 2009”. – The New York Times« Back to Events
