The T&T Guardian reports that jazz trumpeter Etienne Charles will return perform at three Emancipation shows in Trinidad and Tobago. The performances will take place on June 29 at 2:00pm, 6:00pm, and 9:00pm at the Kaiso Blues Café on Woodford Street, Port-of-Spain.
The shows will feature music inspired by the African experience in the new world, a release said.
There will original compositions as well as music from Fela Kuti, the Mighty Sparrow, Lord Kitchener and many others.
“Emancipation has been a running theme in my music since I started composing. I finally wanted to put it together to perform in T&T near Emancipation,” said Charles.
He plans to tour the island during his visit for an educational outreach.
Etienne Charles: Emancipation will be held at 2 pm, 6 pm and 9 pm at the Kaiso Blues Café on Woodford Street, Port-of-Spain. Owned by the iconic duo Carl and Carol Jacobs, Kaiso Blues has established itself as a special space with unique energy and intimacy that has become a creative oasis for many artistes.
Charles, who last played there in 2016, said he has been itching to return to Kaiso Blues since. He will be accompanied by his New York City band comprising: Godwin Lewis (saxophone), Brett Williams (piano), Jonathan Mitchell (bass) and Charles Haynes (drums). [. . .]
