Mimosa is a Vancouver quintet that offers up a unique sound drawing on Jazz, Brazilian sambas, French 60ies pop and Cabaret music. They blend gorgeous melodies, quirky lyrics, incredible groove and sky-high improvisations. Much of their music is original, composed mainly by band leader Anna Lumiere, with a few well-chosen standards in the mix. They have performed all over Canada and in the US and been featured many times at the Vancouver Jazz Festival as well as the Montreal Jazz Festival.
With Rebecca Shoichet on vocals, Karen Graveson sax, flute and backup vocals, Anna Lumiere on piano and accordion, James Meger on bass and Bernie Arai on drums.
