Laura Ann Singh, Marlysse Simmons Argandoña & Rei Alvarez

Miramar performs bolero music – a century-old ballad tradition shared by all Spanish-speaking countries of the Americas.  Pianist/composer Marlysse Simmons and Rei Alvarez (Bio Ritmo) founded Miramar together with the bossa nova vocalist Laura Ann Singh.  The sextet features luscious duets sang by Singh and Alvarez accompanied by piano/organ, guitar, bass and percussion plus an occasional string quartet. Their debut album on Barbés Records was dedicated to the great Puerto Rican composer Sylvia Rexach. Spring 2019 will see the release of a new 45rpm record on the Grammy award-winning Daptone Records. Miramar has been featured on NPR's Tiny Desk and performed at concert halls and festivals across the US including Lincoln Center Out of Doors (NYC), the Kennedy Center's Millennium Stage (Washington DC) and at Stanford University Live! (CA).
