Sabrina Lastman & Sabrina Lastman Quartet

"Telling a story in song does not require words. Of course, if you are a singer, you might then need an exceptional vocal instrument, imagination, and a willingness to walk on tightropes — all of which brings us to Uruguayan-born singer and composer Sabrina Lastman." 
Fernando Gonzalez, contributor to The International Review of Music, Jazz Times & The Miami Herald

“The Candombe Jazz Sessions reflects Sabrina Lastman gift of storytelling. It does not matter if it is an improvised wordless tale, a poetic interpretation sung in Spanish or Portuguese, or her thoughts put to music. It is always a vivid story, full of passionate dramatic nuances, elegance and charm and with a touch of irony.”                    – Eyal Hareuveni, All About Jazz

The Sabrina Lastman Quartet is an innovative music project that brings together jazz, South American rhythms with African roots like Candombe (Afro Uruguayan music), and contemporary music. This project represents the many influences on Ms. Lastman while living in her home country Uruguay, in Israel, and in New York for the past eight years. Some of her compositions are inspired by the poetry of renowned South American writers (Washington Benavides, and Affonso Romano de Sant'Anna) while some are her original poems. In addition to Lastman on vocals, the quartet includes Pablo Aslan (double bass & Grammy Award Nominated),Emilio Solla (piano) and David Silliman (drums & percussion) 

Candombe is a drum-based musical style of Uruguay. This rhythm developed in the River Plate area -- Buenos Aires and particularly in Montevideo -- among the black slaves brought by the Spanish colony in the 18th Century. Candombe is based on Bantu African drumming and other influences the African community received from the new environment they lived in. In Uruguayan culture this drum-based musical style is highly significant and extremely popular, going strong on the streets, halls and carnivals all over the country.
