Jackie Zamora was born and raised in Lima, Perú. She began studying music at the age of 13. Inspired by her Latin roots, she joined the salsa band Casablanca and began to explore salsa, latin-jazz and bossa nova idioms here in the United States. Her 2002 recording with Casablanca, entitled Peregrinos, received the best tropical/salsa song of the year award and the female vocalist of the year award from the New Mexico Hispano Entertainers Association. Jackie has also played with the salsa band Encanto and the Afro-Peruvian band Concepto Tambor. Currently, she is the lead vocalist for CALLE 66, her self-titled Brazilian Quintet, Baracutanga, Encuentro and La Trova.
From Jobim to Joyce, Jazz Brasileiro is synonymous with Brazilian Jazz, playing both classic bossa nova and a wide range of contemporary Brazilian music. The collaboration between guitarist Tony Cesarano and vocalist Debo Orlofsky highlights exquisitely crafted guitar lines and gorgeously haunting melodies sung in Portuguese and English. Accomplished multi-instrumentalists, drummer John Bartlit and bassist Justin Bransford bring their rich talents to the performance.
