Jane Bunnett and Maqueque

March 9 @ 9:30 pm - 11:00 pm

Join us for Jane Bunnett & her all female Cuban jazz group, Maqueque, at Birdland on March 7th – 11th with two sets each night!

Five-time Juno Award winner, Jane Bunnett has turned her bands and recordings into showcases for the finest musical talent from Canada, the US, and Cuba. She has been nominated for three Grammy Awards, received The Order of Canada, The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal, and, most recently, The Premier’s Award for Excellence.

With Maqueque, Bunnett has created something new and phenomenal in the world of jazz. What started out 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, were nominated for a Grammy Award for their release, Oddara, and, most recently, were voted as one the top ten jazz groups by the prestigious DownBeat magazine’s critics poll. Two documentaries have been made about Bunnett’s work: Spirits of Havana by the National Film Board and Embracing Voices.
