Carnival: The Sound of a People
Etienne Charles

“One of jazz’s more ambitious soloists and composers” (The New York Times), the remarkable young Julliard-educated trumpeter meshes a profound knowledge of the jazz tradition with the bone-deep Creole influence of his Trinidad upbringing. This exclusive performance will be the Bay Area debut of his multi-part suite dedicated to the sounds and traditions of his homeland’s Carnival celebration. In his words, “In 2010, I went home for my first carnival since 2001. That feeling of reconnecting with home during our most vibrant ritual is one I’ll never forget. As a musician, the sounds spoke to me. In between 2015 and 2016, I spent 11 weeks in Trinidad & Tobago on my Guggenheim Fellowship researching as many elements of Carnival as I could find.”
