Location: Civic Plaza (14th and Lonsdale)



Bilingual Vancouver quintet Mimosa draws on jazz, Brazilian sambas, French sixties pop and cabaret music to concoct its own unique sound: Gorgeous melodies, quirky lyrics, incredible groove and sky-high improvisations.

Although every member of Mimosa – Rebecca Shoichet, vocals, Anna Lumiere, piano and accordion, Karen Graves, sax, flute and vocals, Conrad Good, bass, and Bernie Arai, drums – performs in many other groups, the band is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2024.

During their two and half decades together Mimosa has developed a unique performance that takes audiences on a journey into time and sound. As Anna Lumiere herself puts it: “If Cleo Lane, Antonio Jobim and Serge Gainsbourg all got together one night and jammed, they might sound like what Mimosa has to offer.”

Presented in partnership with Vancouver International Jazz Festival.
