Susana Raya – I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You (Colin Hay cover) (youtube.com)

Susana Raya is not just another singer-songwriter, but a skilled classical and jazz guitar player and an award-winning jazz vocalist. This time at Munganga, Susana will showcase a diverse selection of her original compositions, along with a mix of jazz and classical covers, accompanied by the virtuoso bass player Jeroen Vierdag.

Susana Songwriter, classically trained guitar player, European awarded jazz singer and jazz guitar graduated, Susana combines her singer-songwriter spirit with a jazz touch, which is enhanced by her Spanish roots. Susana grew up playing classical guitar at the Conservatory of her hometown, Córdoba (Spain). Apart from that, she was always writing songs as a way of expression since she was thirteen. Soon, she felt attracted to jazz and improvised music and started to attend to workshops and masterclass (Judy Niemack, Pat Metheny, Deborah Brown, Jamey Aebersold, Maria João, Deborah Carter…). Inspired by a duet album of guitar players Maarten van der Grinten and Jesse van Ruller,  she decided to establish in Amsterdam to finish her studies in jazz guitar at the Conservatory where they usually teach.

“My music is the result of being inspired by artists that have resonated in me profoundly. My biggest love has gone to Chet Baker, Pat Metheny, Elis Regina, Antonio Vega, Eva Cassidy, and many others…”
