Maria Rivas at Pinecrest Gardens Dec 12
(Published: December 11, 2015)

"I consider Maria Rivas to be one of the finest singers on the world stage today, truly a tremendous talent. ..Her music is varied, original, and unique." Oscar de Leon, Latin Grammy Award winner

Making her third appearance at the Banyan Bowl December 12, Maria Rivas, one of the most versatile voices in Latin America and North America, skillfully combines American and Latin Jazz rhythms with lively yet sentimental music from around the world. She interprets her music in English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, and performs her own blend of traditional standards as well as music and lyrics she has composed herself. During her musical career spanning over 30 years, Maria has released ten CDs while headlining concerts in Latin America, North America, Europe, and Asia, including the world-famous Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland. She has won every prestigious singing award Venezuela and much of Latin America have to offer. Her hit song, "Manduco," remained in the number one position on the charts in Latin America for many months, and in the top 10 for over three years, and turned her into a cultural icon in Venezuela.

Now returning from battle against life-threatening illness, Maria brings her unique sound back to Pinecrest, an intoxicating combination of classic American jazz and Latin music, with just the right splash of Brazilian accents, together with her signature mixture of indigenous, Caribbean, European, and African strains. From slow and sensuous, to very lively with a strong beat, her audiences love alternately to dance to her music, or sit and listen while being both moved and energized. A significant number of her audience members have described her performances as "magical"--their word.

Maria will be accompanied by Alejandro Campos- Musical Director, Piano, Keyboards, Jamie Ousley- Bass, Abner Torres- Drums and Percussion, Special Guests Gabriel Cifuentes- guitar, and Ilan Chester- Vocals, guest composer.

Pinecrest Gardens is located at 11000 Red Road in Pinecrest. Showtime is at 8 PM; a pre-concert dinner is available. For information call 305-669-6990. Tickets are $25-$35 at pinecrestgardens.org or call 877-496-8499.
