Vocalist Anaïs Maviel has been an exciting and unique new presence on the Brooklyn/New York scene over the past few years. Since arriving, her fearless approach to performance has made her an in-demand musician in a number of innovative ensembles, most notably William Parker’s Martin Luther King Project, Parker’s Plaza Band, Dave Ruder’s The Gentleman Rests, Jalalu-Kalvert Nelson’s A Mother’s Lament, Matt Lavelle’s 12 Houses, Patrick Breiner’s Red Metal, and a number of other groups. Encouraged by mentors Nicole Mitchell, Jen Shyu, and Ernest Dawkins, she first came to New York to study with Kris Davis, Gerald Cleaver and Tony Malaby, among others.
