Lauren Henderson and her Quartet bring Lauren’s chart-topping new vocal jazz tracks to the Arts Garage stage as part of her 2023 world tour. Celebrating her African-American and Latinx roots, Henderson is fresh off the success of her 2022 hit Spanish-language jazz album La Bruja (Spanish for The Witch) and presents a poignant live show that transports listeners to other places and times.
Described as “somewhere between a comforting whisper and a cogent declaration” by The New York Times, Lauren Henderson’s music resonates with listeners around the world.
Recently featured in the Financial Times, breaking the Jazz Charts Top 5, and the Year End Jazz Week Top 50 (2020), Henderson’s eclectic vocal influences spread across genres producing a distinct yet versatile sound.
Her music is featured in the Netflix hit series, Sky Rojo, The Drowning, starring Julia Stiles, Avan Jogia, and Josh Charles, El Juego de Las Llaves, starring Ela Velden, Maite Perroni, and Marimar Vega, and Romeo y Julieta starring Lupita Nyong’o and Juan Castano, scored by one of Lauren’s musical partners, Michael Thurber.
Henderson uncovers the layers of her diverse background in English and Spanish. Her compositions paint stories reflecting journeys imposed through the African Diaspora in connection to Henderson’s Panamanian, Montserratian, and vast Caribbean roots as they interplay with her North American upbringing.
Jazz, Latin jazz, flamenco, R&B and soul roots aid in an exploration of culture, society, race relations and the complexities encountered as we navigate life’s obstacles.
