Notas de 4 is Calgary’s original Latin Jazz ensemble. The ensemble’s original compositions are inspired from Flamenco, Latin Jazz and traditional music from Cuba and Mexico.
Their performance has been described as Intense, edgy and dreamy; a reimagination of Latin music composed in a uniquely Canadian landscape. The group consisting of the city’s top world musicians deliver very personal and powerful performances fueled by traditional pieces from across Latin America. Drawing inspiration from bands like Pink Martini, Natalia Lafourcade, Lhasa de Sela, Los Panchos.
The band released their first full-length album “Rosas y Lirios” (Roses & Lilies) in September 2019, which includes a special guest appearance from renowned percussionist Rosendo “Chendy” Leon, originally from Cuba, and Toronto based. The recording project was possible thanks to the help of Alberta Foundation for the Arts(AFFA) and FACTOR Canada.
The group has performed in notable sold-out stages including TEDxCalgary Talk Music, Lolita’s Lounge, Pro-Arts Noon Series, The Junction and Expo Latino. The CD release party is at Arts Common’s amazing acoustic venue “Big Secret Theatre” on October the 19thin downtown Calgary.
