Recording Artist Charmaine Clamor to Perform at Dirty Dog Jazz Cafe, 5/25 - 28

Celebrated by The New York Times as "a gifted vocalist" and by The Los Angeles Times as "one of the important and original new jazz singers of the decade," Filipino pride Charmaine Clamor, the Queen of Jazzipino, makes her Michigan debut at the Dirty Dog Jazz Café, in Grosse Pointe Farms May 25 - 28.

"Something Good" is Charmaine Clamor's 4th US album, with songs in English, Tagalog, and Taglish. 

Tickets ($15 & $30) are now available online at http://www.dirtydogjazz.com or by calling 313-882-5299.

Ms. Clamor, the 2009 Filipinas Magazine Entertainer of the Year, recently gave a command performance at Manila's Malacanang Palace for President Benigno Aquino, United States Ambassador Harry Thomas, and their invited guests. A fortnight after her Michigan engagement, Ms. Clamor will travel to Washington, DC to serenade the Filipino Ambassador to the United States on Filipino National Day, June 12.

Charmaine Clamor brings to Michigan her "Killin' Sweehearts" band, touring in support of their 4th U.S. album, Something Good. The recording, heard locally on CJAM, WKAR, and WLNZ, was Clamor's third straight album in the JazzWeek World Music Top-20.

Recognized by Jazz Times as the reigning Queen of Filipino Jazz, Ms. Clamor blends jazz with music of her beloved home country, the Philippines. She sings in both her adopted tongue of English and her native language, Tagalog, creating new (and swinging) arrangements of beloved Filipino love songs such as "Maalaala Mo Kaya," "Ikaw," and "Dahil Sa Yo."

Born in a developing country where accessible clean water is scarce, Charmaine has fostered a passion for the planet, focused on clean water conservation. In the 3-song Mother Nature Suite on Something Good, Charmaine pays respect to the planet. Charmaine's devotion to a cleaner, healthier earth extends to her work with the Sierra Club Water Committee and Food & Water Watch. Clamor does not stop there, though. With the CD tray for Something Good manufactured from potato, the packaging for the album is 100% recyclable!

Charmaine's musical journey began at age 3, entertaining passengers in the back of buses traveling to Manila, in her homeland of the Philippines. A licensed physical therapist for 6 years, performing music whenever she could, Clamor soon realized she had to follow her artistic calling. But creating, developing and mastering one musical genre has never been enough for the brilliantly eclectic Clamor. Her global recognition reached new heights in 2010 when Charmaine was the only Filipina to appear on the David Byrne/Fatboy Slim concept album, "Here Lies Love" (Nonesuch), about the life of Imelda Marcos, the eccentric former First Lady of the Phillipines

Charmaine's previous releases include Searching for the Soul, Flippin' Out, and My Harana: A Filipino Serenade. Whether it's jazz, world, soul, funk, pop, swing, blues, folk or jazzipino, Charmaine Clamor always delivers Something Good. In Detroit on May 25-28, she intends on proving it.
