Marialy Pacheco & Joo Kraus (Germany)

Marialy Pacheco & Joo Kraus, two mega talents from Germany

Born in Cuba and moved to Germany in the early 2000, Marialy Pacheco is a highly respected pianist in the jazz world. She has a percussive style that immediately recalls Keith Jarrett and melodious lines that come from Oscar Peterson. Her concerts are designed with her own compositions as well as arrangements of works by well known Cuban composers. In 2002 she won the Cuban competition Jo-Jazz, in 2012 she was the first woman to win the prestigious Montreaux Jazz Piano Competition and in 2014, Marialy was announced as first female jazz pianist worldwide to be an official “Bösendorfer Artist“. She would be accompanied by the renowned German trumpet player Joo Kraus who comes from another jazz universe: Funkjazz, club sounds. He received the Echo Jazz Prize as best trumpet player in 2013 and his sixth German Jazz Award in Gold for his solo album “Public Jazz Lounge”.

The PAPJAZZ is proud to feature Marialy Pacheco & Joo Kraus for a must see concert!
