Sofia Rei - A collaboration with Next Stage

Called "one of the best Argentine singers ever" and "a song researcher with a vibrant voice," Sofia Rei is emerging as a star while still holding firm to the scholarly mission of discovering and performing song forms and rhythms rarely heard outside their native cultures. She comes to the Vermont Jazz Center with a quartet of like-minded individuals who share her passion for exploring the deep troughs of Latin rhythms.

Come find out why Phil Lutz of the New York Times claims that Sofia Rei "has been embraced by New York City audiences from Carnegie Hall to the hippest downtown haunts."

Sofia is a restless artist. In a short period of time she has recorded, performed and collaborated with renowned musicians and groups such as John Zorn, Bobby McFerrin, Maria Schneider, Folklore Urbano, Frank London, the Klezmatics, Guillermo Klein, Celso Duarte, Lionel Loueke, Geoffrey Keezer, Pavel Urkiza (Gema y Pavel), Russ Ferrante (Yellow Jackets), Bob Moses, Steve Lacy, Aquiles Baez, Samuel Torres Group, Pedrito Martinez, La Bomba de Tiempo, Alcatraz, and Avantango. She toured Europe with the Grammy award winning Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra and premiered with the group Cerulean Skies, a piece commissioned by the New Crowned Hope Festival in Vienna. In May of 2008, she was featured with vocal giant Bobby McFerrin in Instant Opera at Carnegie Hall in a piece commissioned by composer John Zorn. Sofia is currently part of John Zorn's Song Project, along with vocalists Mike Patton and Jesse Harris. She is also the vocalist of Geoffrey Keezer's Aurea, whose self-titled 2009 release received a Grammy nomination for Best Latin Jazz Album.  In October 2009, Sofia  contributed her vocals to Ljova Zhurbin's Niña Dance, a song cycle inspired by the unsolved murders & disappearances of women and young girls in the city of Juárez, Mexico. Sofia was one of four featured vocalists chosen to premiere newly commissioned work as part of The Jazz Gallery's "New Voices" concert series.

Winner of 2013 Music Awards for best song and best album

Possesing a voluptuously full voice, comprehensive command of Latin American rhythms, an encyclopedic knowledge of folkloric forms from Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Uruguay, Sofia has become an essential creative catalyst on a scene teaming with musicians eager to blend jazz with its South American Siblings.
