Jazz Portraits

A production of  
  

Vocalist Mili Bermejo

Critics have described Mili Bermejo's sound as "part poetry/folk, part Sarah Vaughan sophistication" and a place "where jazz meets Latin with elegance and soul." Bermejo recalls music from her formative years in Argentina and Mexico, including indigenous music she heard as a child and her first encounter with a Miles Davis record. Bermejo describes what it was like to enter a foreign culture — geographically and aesthetically — to pursue her dream of becoming a jazz vocalist. She also conveys her experiences as an instructor at Boston's Berklee College of Music.
