Friday the 13th with En Canto
Fri, Oct 13 at 9pm
Doors at 8:45pm
Tickets: $10 adv/$12 dos
A multi-ethnic, female-led seven-piece, En Canto’s world pop music—a combination of forró, samba, and choro-inspired originals and re-imagined covers of classic Brazilian hits—commands attention and inspires movement. "We love this music because of its compositional brilliance, its original grooves, and its revolutionary nature ..." Accordionist Jamie Maschler, explains.
Playing primarily in North American venues, En Canto currently channels its fierce independence into challenging stereotypes while also helping audiences expand their comfort zones. “We make people dance,” as drummer Adam Kozie puts it “We routinely open our concerts to a room full of shy, awkward faces, and we close them to a sweat-drenched melee of bodies and smiles. We experience real joy when we play these songs, and people feel that, and they respond in kind, regardless of whether they understand the words or know the ‘right’ dance moves.
