Olivia Chindamo with The Rajiv Jayaweera Trio
Australian vocalist, Olivia Chindamo is best known for her effortless ability to improvise or “scat”. She quickly became one of Australia’s most sought-after jazz vocalists performing sold-out shows all over the country with her own band as well as appearing as a guest vocalist with Australian jazz icon, James Morrison and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

She was the Bell Award winner for “Young Australian Jazz Artist of the Year” in 2016 and winner of the Generations In Jazz Vocal Competition in 2014. She released her debut album “Keep an Eye on Spring” in 2015. Olivia’s innate understanding of harmony, together with her perfect intonation and sense of rhythm allow her to create and weave her own melodies over complex progressions. She is an exciting and elegant vocalist who is sure to captivate and impress her audience.

Drummer, Rajiv Jayaweera is also from Melbourne, Australia and moved to New York in 2011. He was soon performing at Birdland Jazz Club with the award-winning French/Domincan vocalist, Cyrille Aimée with whom he toured the world with for four years. Rajiv also regularly appears at Birdland with David Ostwald’s Louis Armstrong Eternity Band. For this performance, his trio will lay the foundation for Olivia, as they explore songs from the Great American Songbook.
