Chilean-born guitarist and singer Camila Meza has to be considered one of the brightest young stars on the contemporary jazz scene. Since moving from Santiago to the US in 2009, she has created a big impact in the New York jazz scene. Meza belongs to a new generation of jazz musicians that are interested in creating new sounds and allowing diverse influences into their music, and her Latin American roots and profound connection to jazz combined with the fusions of contemporary and popular music give the music she creates an astounding appeal. Meza performs on a regular basis at the best jazz venues in New York such as Jazz Standard, Village Vanguard, Blue Note, Smalls Jazz Club, and The Jazz Gallery, plus she has played at festivals and venues all over Europe including Swidnica Jazz Festival in Poland, Hildener Jazz Festival in Germany, Bergamo Jazz Festival in Italy, BMW Jazz Competition in Munich, Bern Jazz Festival in Switzerland and led two nights at France’s prestigious jazz club, the Duc de Lombards. She has four albums to her credit including the breakout album, 2016’s Traces, her debut for renowned NYC jazz label Sunnyside Records.
“Ms. Meza brings an appealing combination of lightness and depth to all the material, singing in a bright, clear voice against the agile stir of a first-rate band. Her improvising, on electric or acoustic guitar, is serious business…” – The New York Times
