Claudia Acune


Steeped in the bossa tradition and the folkloric culture of her native Santiago, Chile, Claudia Acuna ushers in the change of season with her Latin flair and honeyed alto hues. Before becoming one of the elite voices in jazz, the singer, songwriter, and arranger cut her teeth in the late ’90s as part of the cosmopolitan scene that crystallized around now-legendary jam sessions at Zinc Bar and Smalls. While paying her dues, she worked the coat check at the Blue Note before returning to the venue as headliner.
