Currently touring internationally with Christian Scott, aTunde Adjuah and Stefon Harris, Pinderhughes was recently featured on Adjuah’s newest album, Stretch Music (Introducing Elena Pinderhughes).She has performed with an illustrious roster including Herbie Hancock, Hubert Laws, Kenny Barron, Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lyne Carrington, Ambrose Akinmusire, Vijay Iyer, Carlos Santana, Orlando “Maraca” Valle and Joshua Redman. In addition, she has performed at venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall, the White House, SFJAZZ, The Blue Note, The Jazz Gallery and numerous jazz festivals and clubs throughout Europe, Japan, Africa and South America. A Harlem Stage favorite, Pinderhughes brings her own group to Harlem Stage to play original works that showcase her sensibilities as bandleader and composer, providing “a window into her musical journey from the Bay Area to Cuba and New York City, incorporating influences from hip-hop and R&B to Latin music and jazz.”
