Aya Sekine & The Jazz Party

Aya Sekine is a Japanese Jazz pianist who has been actively performing worldwide over the past 2 decades. As a performer, she is best known for her soulful and dynamic style of swinging Jazz and improvisations that is heavily influenced by the Bebop and straight-ahead era in the history, but her true uniqueness comes from the versatility to move across different genres of music, and her wide spectrum of collaborations with artists in Singapore and around the world.
Her recent work includes her own trio project “The Jazz Party” featuring the sought after young jazz practitioners Ben Poh (bass) and Ting Wei Yap (drums) at The Esplanade’s Jazz In July program, an audio-visual-movement performance with multi-disciplinary artist AnGie Seah at ArtScience Museum, and a commissioned composition project Pin品 for The Pipa Quartet at SOTA Concert Hall. She composes and performs as a member of Soul/Jazz group L.A.B (Listen And Believe), and a Soundpainting collective Erik Satay & The Kampong Arkestra led by Tim O’Dwyer. She also expands her collaborations to her homeland Japan, where she tours twice a year to improvise with as many artists as she can, at as many venues as possible to expand her capacity of artistic expressions.

The band is the result of an improbable meeting between a law professor at the university, Xavier Oberson, and a writer, Joel Dicker, at a concert at the Montreux Jazz Festival. On this occasion, these two personalities discovered a common passion for music and, in particular, the Latin rock of the 70s. They decided to found a new group, Latinwood, which brings together both professional musicians and enthusiasts to revive in a modern way this style which has generated mythical groups like Malo or Santana.
