Friday Music Series: Ephemera with Isabel Escalante and Ana Barreiro

Part of the Washington Women in Jazz festival

Amy K Bormet's Ephemera began as an experiment to combine the composer's love of poetry and art song with improvisation, and has grown to incorporate 21st-century composed music, free jazz, and folk music of the world. Bandleader pianist/vocalist Bormet carves out a space for musicians of different genres to explore through her compositions and the ensemble’s collective arrangements.

Venezuelan violinist Isabel Escalante performs internationally as a classical musician, and now turns her attention to interpreting jazz and folk music of the world. Driven by the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela, Isabel created "Together in Music," a series of concerts to raise awareness, give financial support, and donate food/medical supplies to families. 

Ana Barreiro is a jazz drummer based in Los Angeles who carries her Brazilian roots to myriad musical spaces. Originally from Poços de Caldas, a town in the Southeast of Brazil, she was awarded a Latin America Scholarship from Berklee College of Music, and received her master's degree from University of Southern California.
