Amikaeyla Quintet
Friday, August 24th, 8pm, Doors open at 7:30pm

Amikaeyla presents a tantalizing teaser of latest cd "Being In Love"

$12/Adv  $15/Door

"...best of all, Amikaeyla's voice, sinuous and spirited by turns..." - Mike Joyce, Washington Post


Proclaimed as one of the "purest contemporary voices" by NPR, powerhouse Amikaeyla embraces the best of many types of music.  Her sultry sound, as described by MTV, is "like listening to velvet waterfalls", and her soulful flavor captures the listener with dynamic passion and enchanting sincerity.  While the dazzling vocalist from the Washington, DC area draws on a tasteful array of influences from Bel Canto, Funk and Bossa Nova to Blues, her sensibility is pure Jazz.

Winner of eight Washington Area Music Association Awards for Best Jazz, World, and Urban Contemporary Vocalist, and the 2011 Maryland State Arts Council Award for Best World Music Composition, Amikaeyla's glowing mezzo-soprano pipes and her embrace of unexpected repertoire choices is conveyed with grace and soulful authority on her new CD, Being In Love.  Recorded in Washington, DC and Oakland, CA, Being In Love finds Amikaeyla surrounded by an all-star cast of world-class musicians.  Grammy winners Howard Levy, Eugene Friesen, Glen Velez, Esperanza Spalding, Shiela E, John Santos, Michael Spiro, Ray Obiedo and Linda Tillery are present just to name a few. Being In Love is available now in select venues and will be released worldwide in August 2012 by RootsJazz Records.  This evening Amikaeyla will present a tantalizing teaser of her latest release Being In Love and will be joined by Dan Zemelmankeys; Josh Workmanguitar; Greg Wyser-Prattedrums; Dan Robbinsbass, Amikaeyla
