This year marks the fourth return of the NUBLU JAZZ FESTIVAL to Sao Paulo, Brazil. Each year, the Nublu crew of trans-national musicians coming out of downtown New York, performs with local artists. The Nublu Jazz Festival always creates exciting, unpredictable and synergistic musical experiences that can only be found at these shows, presented in partnership with SESC. From March 26 – 29, our Nublu musicians will alternate their performances between SESC Ribaiero Preto and SESC Belenzinho.
Born in the USA in 1984, Alexia has always been surrounded by music. Her mother, an American singer/songwriter, initiated her on blues, jazz and folk, in Bob Dylan and Joni Mitchell.
