MORE ABOUT THE BAND:

Inspired by their mutual devotion to Jazz, world music, and social justice, Hyuna Park and Myriam Phiro have created MARIPOSA, an all-female international Jazz Band with a mission. As a jazz collective, Mariposa brings together 5 musicians who passionately share their musical influences through a unique interpretation of jazz and international standards. This invitation to their musical journey is presented as a symbol of empowerment — the butterfly (“Mariposa” in Spanish) representing the “chaos” concept that “small incidents can produce larger effects.”

Hyuna Park (piano and musical direction), Myriam Phiro (vocals and bandleader), Leonor Falcon(violin), Tina Lama (bass), and Jacquelene Acevedo (drums and percussion) all come from different walks of life and parts of the world. To celebrate NYC’s vast musical diversity, they have adopted a common tongue in a stylistic approach to Jazz which combines North and South American rhythms and languages from 4 different countries, an international repertoire, and an irresistible groove that will make you want to dance, clap, or tap your foot. This musical drive and inventiveness, together with its powerful message of authenticity and world vision, will carry the listener along with MARIPOSA on the wings of their journey to a musical and cultural transformation.
