A FESTIVAL OF EMOTION "...New Bojaira, a quartet that has created a new sound by using the rules of jazz to navigate the structure of flamenco. They seamlessly blended familiar sounds of both genres in a journey between Spain and the United States of America. Their fusion is so deep that at times it is difficult to decipher which leg is leading the musical body: the one standing in jazz or the one standing in flamenco, and the listener can only succumb to the pure joy of being swept away by music."” - Julie Moon Galle Baggenstoss

"The event marries the “complex syncretic musical forms” that arose and are sustained with respect to the histories of regions and peoples, said Adam Graves, Ph.D., D-phi director. “This play of tradition and creativity not only delights us, but like all great arts, it also gives voice to dimensions of human existence that might have otherwise remained concealed to us,” he added. “In this way, this music serves as a kind of analogue to humanistic inquiry in general, in both its critical and creative capacities to enrich our lives by shedding light on the sort of beings that we are.” The interdisciplinary confluence fits well with New Bojaira, which incorporates works from writerly giants such as Cervantes and Lorca into its compositions." ” - Cory Phare

Jazz Weekly

"Comprised of seasoned jazz and flamenco musicians, the debut from New Bojaira demonstrates how well genres can merge under experienced hands." "New Bojaira not only understands the nuances of jazz and Spanish music but also when–and importantly, when not–to use them. An excellent debut from a group of seasoned veterans with a unique musical objective."” - Andy Jurik

PopMatters

"...in the colourful wake of this tradition, come the musicians of New Bojaira with their magnificent music in Zorongo Blu." "This is music that is vividly atmospheric and creates a genuine sense of supernatural danger, a mood which culminates in the serene but spooky “Zorongo Blu”." "...an album that is New Bojaira’s classic celebration of the collision of all that is Moorish and Arabic in Spanish music with all that is African and American in Blues and Jazz."” - Raul da Gama

Latin Jazz Network

"A great combination of flamenco, jazz and some interesting hard bop styles that I like quite a bit." ” - Darek Mazzone
