Finger Dancers Tiny Desk

Finger Dancers was formed when East Coast met West Coast, Jazz met Blues, R&B met Latin and Country met Rock. This soulful duo is driven by the percussive rhythm guitar and sultry vocals of Inez Woods, and multi-instrumentalist Gloria Estrada, who weaves her Jazz-infused walking basslines into their music while adding sweet vocal harmonies.

The duo was built on a foundation of friendship and mutual love for a variety of musical genres. Finger Dancers has been described as unique, melodic, powerful, tender, passionate, creative, and fun to watch.

Their influences range from Ella Fitzgerald, Janis Joplin, Joe Pass, Lhasa, to Stevie Ray Vaughn, Bonnie Raitt, Lila Downs, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Billie Holiday, and The Beatles...to name a few!
