    ORKESTAR ZIRKONIUM

    World

    ORKESTAR ZIRKONIUM (Seattle) is an American mobile brass-and-drum ensemble that formed in 2003 to play the propulsive, virtuosic brass music of the Eastern European Romani diaspora. Inspired by greats such as Fanfare Ciocarlia, Kocani Orkestar, Goran Bregovic, Boban Markovic, Esma Redzepova and others, the group performs traditional popular music from Serbia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and India, as well as original dance tunes generated by the band.

    Zirkonium's energetic stage and offstage shows have lit up art-deco theatres, street parties, clubs, cultural halls, parks, condemned buildings, midnight intersections, and surprised taverns and commercial spaces. The band is equally at home playing massive concert halls as it is bursting into a bar uninvited, leading a street party through back alleys at midnight, or playing a mass wedding at City Hall to celebrate Washington's first day of marriage equality.

  • EN CANTO

    EN CANTO

    Brazil

    From the Northwest, En Canto brings you music as rich and varied as the people and places of Brazil: forro and baiao from the Northeast, bossa nova and choro from Rio, and sambas from the neighborhoods of every city and town. These lively, danceable rhythms and exotic melodies get everyone onto the dance floor!

    "En Canto formed three years ago and has become a familiar fixture at Columbia City's Royal Room, Capital Cider and at festivals such as Northwest Folklife. The septet specializes in forro, from Brazil's Northeast, a music that features accordion and flute and has a kind of honky-tonk bounce."

  • Orchestra Kouyate

    Orchestra Kouyate

    Guinea

    Orchestra Kouyate is a West African Band reflecting the rhythms, culture and traditions of this region.

    Aboubacar "Boka's" voice is golden as he hits the high notes so smoothly while the orchestra accompanies him with an unforgettable balance of background vocals, rhythm, and instrumentation.
