ARIELLA is an esoteric embodiment of sensory enlightenment, that an evening of music can be composed of Jazz, Blues, Bossa, Samba, Tango, Theater, Rock, Soul, and so much more, when the genre is love. With elegant vocals by the charismatic Ariella McManus, a singer with emotional depth and a songwriter rich with breadth, she eloquently combines stunning melodies with transcendent grooves to create an immersive embrace. Teamed with guitar maestro, Nicolaas Kraster, a talented wunderkind from Fredonia, NY, that’s been compared to Ottmar Liebert, Paco de Lucía and Pat Metheny, the pair effortlessly craft an engaging path to the spiritual promised land.
Kraster elaborates, “With passionate music performed at the highest level, with intimate and honest lyrics that express, and welcome, vulnerability, with masterfully played rhythms that can move mountains with an explosion or a whisper, we believe audiences yearn to explore the farthest reaches of what music can offer. That from simple songs to grand composition our audiences possess the depth to be truly moved in many ways. Our mission is to share the music that inspired us through the songs we’ve written and the covers we’ve re-imagined.”
