Amina Figarova & Bart Platteau
To say, Amina Figarova & Bart Platteau are a force-to-be-reckoned with, both on and off-stage, would be truly understanding it. Now hailing from the streets of New York City, these two have traveled the world performing, teaching, and experiencing music, in one form or another, for most of their lives. Figarova, originally classically-trained, now incorporates elements of jazz, hip-hop, and funk into her music to craft complex musical compositions and performances that must be experienced to be understood. Aside from being married to Amina Figarova, Bart Platteau is a consummate jazz artist in his own right. While he has studied everything from chamber music to percussion, Bart's jazz flute is what he is most known and appreciated for. Aside from touring and managing, he is an esteemed flute instructor in New York City. Together, Bart and Amina make up one-third of the Amina Figarova Sextet.
Figarova has 13 studio albums released, including her most recent album, entitled Persistence
