Jazzy Ash invites the whole family to come along on a Crescent City inspired, jazzy music adventure with her new album Bon Voyage. Already, Jazzy Ash’s cover of the Louis Armstrong classic “Heebie Jeebies” is the #1 song on SiriusXM Kids Place Live radio, and NPR's All Things Considered calls Jazzy Ash "one of the most talked about children's music artist this year".
Jazzy Ash’s songs celebrate the magic of movement, with a lot of sugar and sass thrown in, New Orleans –style. Bon Voyage features gypsy jazz, zydeco, swing, blues, and Dixieland to encourage kids and their grown-ups to celebrate the music of New Orleans as part of the American folk music heritage. Original songs include “Firefly,” Tight Rope Walker,” “Tandem Bike” (featuring “Boom” from Sugar Free Allstars), and “Ice Skates” (featuring Grammy-award winner Jennifer Gasoi). The Jazzy Ash band of teaching musicians adds various horns, banjo, accordion, guitar and drums to the jaunty sounds of each song.
Jazzy Ash, also known as Ashli Christoval, grew up with a mom from New Orleans and a dad from Trinidad. She often spent summers in New Orleans with her aunts and grandparents, enjoying the culture and music that permeated their West Bank neighborhood. These trips reaffirmed the importance of exploring this part of her heritage. “Learning about and performing this music gives me a foundation. Truly, I’ve found myself through this experience . Even though I was born in California, I see myself as a second-generation New Orleanean , since it’s so much a part of my family’s experience, going back at least five generations.”
Jazzy Ash has had joy of presenting the music from Bon Voyage and previous albums at prestigious venues such as Lincoln Center, Getty Center, and Live in the Rumpus Room at Sirius XM Radio.
