Etienne Charles Live Album Recording W/ An All-star Lineup
March 13 @ 7:00 PM PDT
Hailed by The New York Times as “an auteur” (Ben Ratliff) and by Jazz Times as a “daring improviser who delivers with heart-wrenching lyricism” (Bill Milkowski), Trinidad born Etienne Charles has received critical acclaim for his exciting performances, thrilling compositions, and knack for connecting with audiences worldwide. Charles’ new album, Carnival: The Sound of a People Vol. 1, is an excursion into the varied acoustic sounds, grooves, chants, and rituals of his native Trinidad & Tobago Carnival. His 2016 album San Jose Suite was a musical discourse on the effects of colonialism through the scope of the experiences of First Nation peoples and African descendants in three San Jose locations, Costa Rica, California, and Trinidad.
