Come to Alphabet City for an evening of jazz with Kenia Ashby as part of City of Asylum’s Vocalist Series. Kenia Ashby‘s voice embodies the best of the Brazilian sound – deep and sultry, richly diverse, unexpectedly explosive. She is renowned for her ability to translate the complex rhythms of her Brazilian homeland into jazzy creations. Kenia creates her own unique blend of Brazilian pop, samba, bossa nova and choro with great stage presence and a gift for engaging the audience.
