Camila Meza bursted into the scene in 2017 with her award-winning album ‘Traces’, which earned her two Independent Music Awards for Best Contemporary Jazz and Best Latin Jazz. The New York Times hails her as “a bright young singer and guitarist with an ear for music of both folkloric and pop intention”.

Born in Chile, Ms. Meza now resides in New York City from where she tours worldwide with her bands. Camila partnered with bassist Noam Wiesenberg and created an ensemble with classical strings and percussion, collectively named The Nectar Orchestra. Her guitar chops are far forward as well, switching between originals and favorites from Pat Metheny, Milton Nascimento and Jobim.

After being featured as a special guest soloist with the Metropole Orchestra (together with Lizz Wright and Becca Stevens) at the prestigious North Sea Jazz Festival last summer, it was a logical step to invite her again to The Netherlands. She will present her new album Amber that was recently released on Sony Masterworks.
