Biography:
The celebration of the release of Sangria marks Parker’s debut as a leader, where she seamlessly blends together the considerable talents of her Indo Latin Jazz Ensemble, which includes 2-time Grammy nominated woodwind virtuoso Paul McCandless, trailblazing guitarist Matthew Montfort (Ancient Future), bassist and cellist Kash Killion, (Sun Ra Arkestra, Cecil Taylor); Latin percussionist Duru Demetrius (Joe Henderson, Herbie Hancock); tabla virtuoso Debopriyo Sarkar (Kronos Quartet), and drummer/percussionist Brian Rice (Mike Marshall).

Latin Beat Magazine raves: Sangria blends “the rhythmic syncopations of Latin jazz music with the entrancing, asymmetrical meters of East Indian rhythms resulting in first-class world music.”

“Dazzling debut.... Parker’s subtle and sensuous sounds reflect exotic flavors of India, the Middle East and Latin America.”
— PALO ALTO DAILY NEWS

“Parker, of course, didn't invent the idea of world jazz… but she keeps it moving forward... demonstrating that the fusion of jazz and world music still has plenty of possibilities after all these years.”— ALL MUSIC GUIDE

“This collection of eight original instrumentals by Mariah Parker is just one of many examples of the infusion of East Indian music into Western music, but to my ears one of the most successful.” — AUDIOPHILE AUDITION
