Friday April 29th En Canto Album Release Show
8:30pm | Doors at 7:00pm: En Canto Album Release Show
Tickets $10 advance/ $12 at the door
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

En Canto, Seattle’s only Brazilian forró band, will be back at The Royal Room for a national release of their first full-length album called Solto por Jeri. We want you to come party with us and help us celebrate this new milestone!

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.

Tickets: $12 advance/ $15 at the door/ $10 students
Tickets available from Stranger Tickets

Club Shostakovich XV - The Final Quartet and The Lost Composers. To celebrate Shostakovich's last quartet and his deep impact on 20th century music, we're featuring music by composers murdered in World War II whose music might have profoundly altered the sound of the century. String Trios and Quartets by Hans Krása, Erwin Schulhoff and Pavel Haas will be performed by Trio Pardalote and the Girsky Quartet with guest violist Joseph Gottesman. Violinist Blayne Barnes joins Heather Bentley and Rowena Hammill with the illustrious Misha Shmidt leading Shostakovich's 15th Quartet, which premiered less than a year before his death. Comprising 6 slow movements and clocking in at 36 minutes, it is the longest of the 15 quartets, and also one of the most transcendent. We're extremely proud and grateful to be wrapping up this cycle in the same place we started in July of 2012, at the beloved Royal Room.
