About

Singer-songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Fini Bearman’s fourth album, La Loba (2020) received glowing praise from the UK Jazz press, including 4 ****’s and ‘Editors Choice’ from Jazzwise – ‘La Loba marks Bearman out as one of contemporary music’s most imaginative song stylists’ (Peter Quinn).

Tonight, Fini comes together with Tom Cawley (piano) and Corrie Dick (drums) to perform songs from this record, in the wonderfully intimate atmosphere of the Vortex.

Together in this open and playful trio setting, these musicians explore Fini’s music, rooted in the jazz tradition whilst calling on influences from the Brazilian songbook, contemporary folk, and the great songwriters of the 20th century.

Spanning a wide range of musical textures and lyrical themes, ‘La Loba’ is infused with world-wide influences, from American folklore, to stories of young children in East Berlin. These are songs about womanhood and childhood; looking for love and finding it; femininity, courage and the life-long journey towards individuation. As well as drawing luscious and vivid imagery, this new collection of songs is a celebration of all the dimensions of life as well as a call to arms – challenging the listener to stand up and find their own voice.
