The 29th Jewish Music Festival House Concert series continues with a performance by singer Kat Parra. Since quitting her corporate job seven years ago to pursue a full-time career in music, Kat has released four critically acclaimed CDs, been invited to perform in Amsterdam, Brazil and Mexico as well as top venues throughout the United States, earned the title of “Best Latin Jazz Vocalist” of 2010 and 2008 by Latin Jazz Corner, and received a 2008 nomination for “Latin Jazz Album of the Year” from the Jazz Journalists Association. Kat obliterates musical boundaries with her "Nuevo Sefardi," an integration of Spanish Jewish music with the music of Cuba, Perú, Argentina, Spain and the Middle East. For this concert, Kat is joined by her pianist and musical director, Murray Low, and woodwinds player Masaru Koga.
