Somewhere between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble, a Brazilian street band and Japanese film noir is Pink Martini. Influenced by Latin music, jazz, cabaret, cinema scores and more, Pink Martini brings melodies and rhythms from different parts of the world together to create an eclectic, modern sound.
Here's your chance to experience them live in concert on one of three evenings in November:
November 17th at Marin Center in San Rafael at 8pm
November 19th at Grace Pavilion in Santa Rosa at 8pm
November 20th at Paramount Theater in Oakland at 7:30pm
