Suburban Square Summer Concert Series featuring Venissa Santi Quintet
Venissa Santi is a skilled musician with a background in Latin Jazz. Venissa has a unique and beautiful voice. Her artistry stems from the necessity to express the many influences that have nourished her spirit as a Cuban American. In 2008 Venissa won the prestigious Pew Fellowship, for Folk and Traditional Arts. In 2009, she was signed to Sunnyside Records and released Bienvenida, which immediately climbed to #3 on radio show host and jazz expert, Bob Parlocha’s list of Top Ten recordings. Venissa’s vocals along with her band performs with a Latin flair; however, they can easily adjust to their style to the audience and can perform straight jazz or more bluesy jazz.
