Waikiki Beach Concert Series
July 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
A multi-ethnic, female-led sextet, En Canto is Seattle’s only Forró band. Forró music is a combination of multiple Brazilian rhythms including baião, xote and arrasta-pé. The word refers to both the musical genre and the accompanying partner dance where it is played. En Canto shows are exuberant sonic journeys with swirling Brazilian rhythms. The sound is fueled by twin accordions and with jazz backgrounds. The group brings the Pacific Northwest a rare link between old and new Brazil.
