Description

ODDARA is the sophomore release from four--time JUNO Award winner, two--time GRAMMY Award nominee and Officer of the Order of Canada, soprano saxophonist/flautist Jane Bunnett and Maqueque. Jane Bunnett's latest project is an assembly of all--star Cuban musicians, an ensemble which includes herself and five extraordinary young females known as Maqueque ("the energy of a young girl's spirit"). Brought together and mentored by Bunnett, Maqueque includes Yissy Garcia on drums, Dánae Olano on piano, Melvis Santa on percussion and vocals, Celia Jiménez on bass and Magdelys Savigne on batá drums and congas. This new project is even more instrumentally--oriented than their acclaimed debut, and while Bunnett's flute and soprano saxophone are the main voices, all the members make strong and vital contributions as both players and composers. Group vocals are closely integrated into the performances, and the addition of violin lends new depth to this already rich ensemble. This truly is a collective, cooperative, coherent musical unit. "Everything I've done," Bunnett says with pride, "has led up to this group, which is the perfect vehicle for now."
