Aurora Arteaga Quartet
The music of Aurora Arteaga Quartet is defined by its originality. We are approached by an imaginative and fresh jazz, keeping the connection with the jazz tradition and emotions.
The quartet began its journey in Madrid in 2007, at the initiative of the singer and composer Aurora Arteaga. Subsequently, in the search for a musical language of her own, Aurora takes her music to Finland, India or Portugal and establishes herself for some years in the Basque Country and then in New York, where she works intensely as a musician.
Her compositions find inspiration in her travels and the sound environment of cities and nature, like a walk in the woods or the sound of a New York laundry.
In New York, Aurora Arteaga Quartet has offered concerts in clubs such as Cornelia Street Cafe, Somethin 'Jazz Club, New York Live Arts, The 55 Bar, Shrine, Bonafide Jazz Club, Casa Mezcal...
In Spain, in addition to their regular concerts in Madrid (El Despertar, Café Berlín, La Fídula, Plaza Jazz Club) and Basque (Altxerri Jazz, Jazz Antzokia Vitoria), they have been invited to festivals such as the Madrid Jazz Festival, CajaGranada Jazz Festival, Zaragoza Jazz Festival, Ellas Crean, Jazz Festival of the Cerezales Foundation, Vitoria Jazz Festival…
They have also played at the Victoria Eugenia Theater in San Sebastián , the Arenal Theater in Madrid, the Canal Foundation Theater, the Bilbao Sea Museum, etc. With a personal mix of styles, influenced by pop and root music, they offer their own compositions and original arrangements of jazz and Brazilian music.
