Paola Márquez

Colombian singer based in Belgium. She studied Jazz at the Ghent Conservatory, since 2009 she has developed her musical career with projects where she has grown in different styles and roots of music that inspired her to follow this path, but always keeping that connection with Jazz that has brought her from the other side of the world. She is a versatile singer, her vocal quality is broad and impeccable, capable of touching the hearts of her audience with a warm tone and interpretations of lyrics and melodies that transcend language barriers. When she sings a cumbia it is never the same as when she slips into the melodies of jazz and bossa-nova, or gets passionate with the tonadas llaneras and lets herself go in the strength of the lyrics of tango, zamba and chacarera among others. Her record production has been with different groups such as Maguare, Palenque Matongue, and Proyecto secreto under the record label Zephyrus Records.

Roni Ben-hur

Jazz guitarist Roni Ben-Hur has earned a sterling reputation as a musician and educator, renowned for his golden tone, improvisational brilliance, compositional lyricism and ability to charm peers, students and listeners alike. Originally from Tunisia, now based in New York City. He has recorded a dozen-plus albums as leader or co-leader, with The New York Times praising his “crisp, fluid style” and Time Out New York calling him “a formidable and consummately lyrical guitarist.” He has developed a rare facility in both straight-ahead jazz and samba/bossa-nova styles, underscored by his work with masters in each field, from bebop piano sage Barry Harris and winds ace Frank Wess to beloved Brazilian vocalist Leny Andrade and composer Marcus Valle.
