Tara Kannangara

Categorizing her diverse sound is a difficult proposition, but Juno-nominated artist Tara Kannangara endorses the tag "Groove-Based Indie Jazz," for elements of melodic indie pop are seamlessly meshed with fresh jazz grooves. Similarly, the mellow feel of her trumpet playing neatly complements the subtle nuances of her unaffected vocal style.   As a bandleader, Kannangara is quickly making a splash on the Toronto jazz scene and continues to perform across Canada and throughout the United States, with notable performances at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC and New York City's Jazz Gallery. Grammy-nominated pianist and composer Vijay lyer admires Tara: “She's got a rare and special combination of assets: her songs are full of soul and wit, her improvisations are graceful and lyrical, and she's a sparkling performer.  I can't wait to hear what she does next!
