It's late notice, yes. But it's worth it. Maria de Barros is performing tonight at Town Hall Seattle, and I just found out that a Cape Verde cultural organization is giving away 130 free tickets for youth age 18 and under. You can find the details about the show and the giveaway here (click "events"), along with some Cape Verdean music samples from Cesaria Evora, Maria de Barros, Lura, Maria Alice, Suzanna Lubranno, Tito Paris, and Mindel Band.
More details on this and other upcoming world music performances in the Northwest at the SoundRoots Calendar.
