César Orozco

Cesar Orozco & Kamarata Jazz Kamarata Jazz is the solo project of César Orozco. He created it in Venzuela back in 2006 as a quintet: piano, electric bass, drums, percussion and Venezuelan cuatro. They currently play as a quintet but using a saxophone instead of a “cuatro”. Kamarata Jazz mixes Venezuelan and Cuban traditional music with Jazz plus other musical genres such as flamenco, tango, and bossa nova. The repertoire is based in some of the Orozco’s original compositions, as well as innovative versions of well-known Venezuelan and Cuban pieces from the traditional repertoire. The project summarizes the musical background and extensive influences that Orozco has developed after living in three different countries with strong musical cultures such as Cuba, Venezuela and now, USA.

Musicians:
César Orozco: Piano, Keyboards, and Direction
