Biography

Original 8 piece modern jazz/lounge group “Barbarella” was formed in the spring of 2008. The members were brought together from small towns in Ontario and Nova Scotia through Humber College’s Bachelor in Contemporary Music program in Toronto.
Barbarella performs their arrangements of original music composed by Aurora.
Aurora spent three weeks composing at the inspirational Banff International Workshop in Jazz and Creative Music May/June2009. One of her compositions has been aired on CBC radio One local Nova Scotia program “CBC Mainstreet” in Jan 2010.

Barbarella has played at the Toronto Jazz club “The Rex Hotel Jazz & Blues Bar” in June and Sept 2009 with tremendous response from local Toronto audiences.
We believe our project is a sophisticated and authentic product of Canadian support in the Arts.
