The Vancouver quintet draws on Jazz, Brazilian Sambas, French 60ies pop and Cabaret music to concoct its own unique sound: gorgeous melodies, quirky lyrics, incredible groove and sky-high improvisations.
With three critically acclaimed Cds and festival appearances all over Canada (including the Vancouver and Montreal Jazz Festivals), they have become CBC favourites. Since 2016 they have performed at various festivals, including the Harmony Arts Festival, the Gibsons
Jazz Festival, the Pender Harbour Jazz Festival, the Fort Langley Jazz Festival and many others.
Mimosa’s music is composed by the three women of the group and some of their compositions have been used in film and television (Rise of the Gargoyles, Mange ta ville, etc). Lumiere also received a IMA composition award for Hotel des peines perdues and some of her songs have been rearranged for choir (Echos du Pacifique).
The band is made up of Rebecca Shoichet, vocals, Anna Lumiere (piano and accordion), Karen Graves (sax, flute and vocals), Stefan Bienz (bass) and Bernie Arai (drums). Although every member of Mimosa is also active on the Canadian music scene in many other groups, the band has been together for two decades and has developed a unique performance that will take you on an unforgettable journey of time and sound.
