Duende Libre is a high-energy, dynamic power trio based in Seattle. Their vibrant and danceable sound draws on a range of global and local influences, from Afro-Cuban Jazz to Brazilian Samba to American Funk & Soul, earning them an Earshot Jazz Golden Ear Award for 2018 NW Jazz Recording of the Year.
To kick off this year’s Mostly Music in the Park series, Duende Libre will be joined by guest vocalists Frank Anderson and Chava Mirel. The pair’s compelling vocals, engaging presence, and original interpretations of jazz, R&B, gospel, and West African songs offer a potpourri of soul-satisfying music.
