Catalina Jazz Club Presents:


Venissa Santi


What do legendary radio show host and jazz expert, Bob Parlocha, Latin music icon Ruben Blades and renowned promoter, Dick Le Palm have in common? They unanimously agree that Cuban American singer-songwriter Venissa Santi is a name to watch.


As Raul D’ Gama of Latin Jazz Network wrote, “She joins the likes of Billie Holiday, Abbey Lincoln, Sheila Jordan, Elis, Rosa, Celia, Flora Purim and fewer others than can be counted on the fingers of a hand – as the highest practitioners of the art of vocal music.”


"Venissa Santi is a refreshing spirit, an extraordinarily talented and diverse musician with the knack for making the unexpected sound so welcome." -- Pianist, Educator, Author - Rebeca Mauleon


The musicians are:

Venissa Santi - vocals

Dennis Hamm - piano

John Belzaguy - bass

Francois Zayas - percussion
