Let’s celebrate International Women’s Day with jazz music
Friday March 9th, we are celebrating Women’s Day at the Alliance Française of Miami with a special edition of the Apéro Jazz, in partnership with les Dames d’Escoffier. Always a convivial evening outside on the Alliance française’s terrace to listen to the great jazz of the jazz Duo of Melikah and Jason Matthews.
A peaceful bubble in the heart of hectic Miami as we like to call it. As every second friday of the month, from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, it will a special moment of relaxation and enjoyment, but also a time to meet and savor the vibrations of the jazz. A taste of a French café in South Florida. The Apéro Jazz is hosted by the Alliance française South Florida, in Miami. This organization aims to encourage the study of French language and culture and to foster cultural, intellectual, artistic, and friendly exchanges between the French-speaking world and our local community. It has been providing contact with French culture to the South Florida community since 1969.
Melikah Suarez is going to perform tomorrow in duo with Jason Matthews. Melikah was born in Cuba with a gift for vocals. At the age of fifteen, a friend introduced her to jazz. Falling in love with this type of musical genre made her venture out to study different jazz vocalist, such as Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn and Diane Reeves to mention a few. In the year 2000, Melikah attended Miami-Dade Community College where she received a high standard quality vocal and musical education, as well as theatrical general studies.
She studied classical voice with professionals as New York opera vocalist Eileen Duffy-Brown as well as music business. She then decided to venture into the realm of jazz where she had musical training with such great musicians such as Felix Gomez and Mike Gerber among others. She has performed all over the country with renowned musicians and is presently working on her solo project, which consists of Jazz as well as neo-soul with a touch of afro-cuban rythms.
