Arts Whistler Live! presents: Qairo
September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm PDT$30
Based in Bordeaux, France, QAIRO is a fiery and dynamic 7-piece ensemble that combines the emotionally charged vocals and pulsing rhythms of flamenco with the infectious melodies and ear-popping tonalities of the Mediterranean diaspora. It’s music for dancing – no matter where you’re from.
It’s Turkish micro-tones played on a saxophone, original flamenco verses sung on clarinet, Balkan rhythms punctuated by Andalucian guitar, and flamenco dance footwork pounded out like improvised jazz.
Qairo is guitar, oud, clarinet, saxophone, drums, electric bass, cante (flamenco song) and baile (flamenco dance) acting like they belong on stage together — and pulling it off.
