Makareta is a charismatic singer/songwriter with a sound described as “strong liquor, cigars & silk”. Her Jazz band features the superb musicianship of Matt Watson (piano/trumpet/flugal), Tony Masterantonio (guitar) Edgar San Gabriel (bass), Neil Williamson (drums).

Refreshing and new to the Auckland jazz scene, Makareta & Blue Pearl have featured this year at the Queenstown Jazz Festival, Fiji Jazz Festival, Queenstown Winter Festival and were support for the NZ Renee Geyer Tour

Makareta has just released her debut original album, “Love on a Swing” (available on iTunes or Marbecks record store, Auckland).

“Makareta’s songs are up to the standard of the American songwriters of the 30’s and 40’s. I can give no higher praise than that” – Joe Carberry, Northern Jazz Society

“Umber’s smooth vocals create a nostalgic dreamy mood and shine beyond the large arsenal of instruments. - Paul Thompson, NZ musicians mag

Her musical background comes from soul, RnB, acid jazz, Latin, Brazilian, swing and Waiata Maori, giving her a unique ability to move from the smoothest jazz, through the beauty of te reo, to songs that will get you grooving. Makareta & Blue Pearl’s irresistible sound leaves you wanting more.
