Celebrated by The New York Times as "a gifted vocalist" and by The Los Angeles Times as "one of the important and original new jazz singers of the decade," Filipina pride Charmaine Clamor, the Queen of Jazzipino, debuts in Colorado for a special concert on JANUARY 29, SATURDAY, 7PM at the BROOMFIELD AUDITORIUM. The show is proudly presented by the Filipino-American Community of Colorado, with official media partner KUVO/KVJZ 89.3 FM.
General Admission ($25) and a limited number of VIP Tickets are available online through BrownPaperTickets at: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/140603
Ms. Clamor, the 2009 Filipinas Magazine Entertainer of the Year, brings her 6-piece "Killin' Sweehearts" band (with horns!) in support of their 4th U.S. album, Something Good. The album, heard locally on KUVO is on the JazzWeek World Music radio chart - Clamor's third straight album in the World Music Top-20.
Recognized by Jazz Times as the reigning Queen of Filipino Jazz, Ms. Clamor blends jazz with music of her beloved home country, the Philippines. She sings in both her adopted tongue of English and her native language, Tagalog, creating new (and swinging!) arrangements of beloved Filipino love songs such as "Maalaala Mo Kaya," "Ikaw," and "Dahil Sa Yo."
Born in a developing country where accessible clean water is scarce, Charmaine has fostered a passion for the planet, focused on clean water conservation. In the 3-song Mother Nature Suite on Something Good, Charmaine pays respect to the planet. Charmaine's devotion to a cleaner, healthier earth extends to her work with the Sierra Club Water Committee and Food & Water Watch. Clamor does not stop there, though. With the CD tray for Something Good manufactured from potato, the packaging for the album is 100% recyclable!
Finding harmonic similarities between the traditional spiritual song "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child" and the traditional Filipina Visayan folk lullaby "Ili-Ili," Clamor combined the two to create the haunting and stirring "Motherless Ili-Ili." She will unveil the song on January 29.
Charmaine's musical journey began at age 3, entertaining passengers in the back of buses traveling to Manila, in her homeland of the Philippines. A licensed physical therapist for 6 years, performing music whenever she could, Clamor soon realized she had to follow her artistic calling. But creating, developing and mastering one musical genre has never been enough for the brilliantly eclectic Clamor. Her global recognition reached new heights in 2010 when Charmaine was the only Filipina to appear on the David Byrne/Fatboy Slim concept album, "Here Lies Love" (Nonesuch), about the life of Imelda Marcos, the eccentric former First Lady of the Phillipines
Charmaine Clamor will be available for autograph signing and photographs immediately after the concert.
Charmaine's previous releases include Searching for the Soul, Flippin' Out, and My Harana: A Filipino Serenade. Whether it's jazz, world, soul, funk, pop, swing, blues, folk or jazzipino, Charmaine Clamor always delivers Something Good. In Denver on January 29, she intends on proving it.
