Mexico’s Woman of the year for arts and culture, Migdalia van der Hoven presents her brilliant quartet focusing on music from the jazz and jazz fusion repertoire with catchy melodies, hard swing and heavy groove. Berklee educated drummer, Migdalia will be performing a mixture of original and contemporary tunes as part of her new album Point of Departure recorded live at Abbey Road Studios with Wikus van der Hoven (Sax) Johnny Mayers (Bass) and Josh Stidwill (Piano). Their set is a very accessible West Coast style sound which promises to keep the listener enthralled and engaged.
Migdalia van der Hoven is an International Award winning Mexican drummer currently touring with SIX the Musical across the UK. She is also a Vater Drumsticks, Bosphorus Cymbals and RTOM Corporation artist. She is a Berklee College of Music graduate (where she studied and performed with Jackie Santos, Terri Lynn Carrington, Victor Mendoza and Mark Walker). She is known for her groove, sensitivity and versatility across multiple genres such as funk, jazz, fusion, latin jazz, pop and world music.
Together with her latest project "The Migdalia van der Hoven Quartet", she launched her new EP "Girl Facing South" with a series of dates in and around London including the EFG London Jazz Festival 2021, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Toulouse Lautrec, Pizza Express Live and more. The EP comprises a mix of original and West Coast fusion tracks and has already received positive reviews from Grammy Award winning artists.
Migdalia has performed in the UK with Scott Stroman, Adam Glasser, Russell Brand, Paul Enger (Caffe Nero), The All Souls Orchestra, Women in Jazz and on the BBC/ITV. She became the first Mexican Female drummer to ever perform at Ronnie Scott’s and the EFG London Jazz Festival. Migdalia has become “Woman of the year 2022” in Mexico in arts and culture for her contribution in music nationally and internationally.
