Sabrina Lastman Project is an innovative music project that combines jazz, South American rhythms with African roots like Candombe (Afro Uruguayan Music), Tango, Vidala, Spanish and contemporary music. This project represents the many influences on Lastman while living in her home country Uruguay, in Israel, and in New York. The SLP plays original compositions, and arrangements of music by Latin American composers like Egberto Gismonti (Brazil) and Rubén Rada (Uruguay), being some of her compositions inspired by the poetry of renowned South American writers. She brings those experiences – so far away from each other – to an artistic unity, showing that cultural bridges can be built. As a vocalist, Sabrina expands the possibilities of the voice, finding a rich variety of sonorities, colors, and textures.
“The Candombe Jazz Sessions reflects Sabrina Lastman gift of storytelling. It does not matter if it is an improvised wordless tale, a poetic interpretation sung in Spanish or Portuguese, or her thoughts put to music. It is always a vivid story, full of passionate dramatic nuances, elegance and charm and with a touch of irony.
