“Parker and friends blend the rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz music with the entrancing, asymmetrical meters of East Indian rhythms resulting in first-class world music. Intriguing melodies that draw musical inspiration from the tempos of Brazil, Cuba, India and Spain make for an uplifting serene yet passionate musical journey into an ideal world.” – LATIN BEAT MAGAZINE
In 2009 Mariah and her Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble performed their debut concert to a full house at Yoshi’s in Oakland. Indo Latin Jazz Live in Concert captures the magic of that first performance as well as subsequent concerts at Berkeley’s Freight & Salvage, the Throckmorton Theater in Mill Valley and Bob Weir’s TRI Studios in San Rafael. This recording, released in 2017, received rave reviews and quickly rose to #32 on the national JazzWeek radio chart.
