Her parents named her "Star" ... and with a grandfather, uncles and a father all famous musicians, how could she be anything but? The star in question is Estrella Morente, who has since exceeded every prediction of success to become one of the greatest flamenco vocalists alive today. Celebrated for her fresh approach to flamenco and popular Spanish songs, Morente has a supple and evocative voice, summoning heart-broken regret and boundless joy with equal ease (and often within the same song). So stirring is her voice, that director Pedro Almodóvar included it on the soundtrack to his Oscar-nominated film, Volver. Experience her intense rhythms and moody melodies -- and the accompaniment of a dazzling flamenco guitarist -- when Morente performs live at Cal Performances' Zellerbach Hall. Learn More

DAKAH HIP HOP ORCHESTRA
DJ JERRY ROSS
With more musicians than you can shake a stick at (topping off at 60 members), the Dakah orchestra is taking hip-hop in an entirely new direction.
Touted as the world's "largest hip-hop orchestra," Dakah's MCs and DJs are backed by a medley of classically trained musicians (many of whom are members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic) for a unique symphonic lineup.
While most of contemporary hip hop is contructed with minimal doses of samples and synths, Dakah provides a unique lush backdrop that can only be provided by live violins, violas, cellos, clarinets, oboes, bassoons, harps, and the rest of the symphonic range.
Though Dakah ranks as one of Los Angeles most beloved groups, with recent shows at the Disney Theatre and Henry Fonda Theatre attracting thousands, this will be their first show outside of Los Angeles, and it will be eagerly anticipated.
This year marks the historic 10th Anniversary of the North Beach Jazz Fest. After 10 years, NBJF has pulled out all of the stops to present its finest lineup ever, a feast of sights and sounds from around the United States.
With over 50 acts and hundreds of musicians, it's easy to see why this year's North Beach Jazz Fest will be the best ever!
