PATRICE FISHER & ARPA
LATIN JAZZ ENSEMBLE
Latin jazz harpist & composer, Patrice Fisher, has been performing and recording her own compositions since 1980. She has recorded 14 albums of original music, including her latest CD, “Sunset” She has performed at such international festivals as the Cancun Jazz Festival, the Jambalaya Jazz Festival in Ilhabela, Brazil, the Trova Jazz Festival in Guatemala and the Festi Jazz in La Paz, Bolivia. She has performed for more than 30 years at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival. Patrice also performs Celtic music and is director of the New Orleans Celtic Harp Ensemble.
“An unexpected delight!” raves David Fricke of Rolling Stone Magazine. Gene Scaramuzzo of Gambit newspaper says of Arpa “There are many sides to this local composer/harpist. It’s not unusual to see her play a staid classical gig in the morning and a smoky music club at night. Strong rhythms form the undercurrent of her instrumental music with Arpa.”
