A multi-ethnic, female-led seven-piece, En Canto’s world pop music – a combination forro, samba, and choro-inspired originals and reimagined covers of classic Brazilian hits – commands attention and inspires movement. “We love this music because of its compositional brilliance, its original grooves, and its revolutionary nature … its roots in post-colonialism, in cultural battles for class and racial equality,” Accordionist Jamie Maschler, explains. “Why wouldn’t it also inspire gender-equality?”
