Maracuja

June 17, 2019 • 7:30 p.m.
The Lyric, with Cash Bar

Maracuja takes you on a journey around Latin America playing a wide variety of music from upbeat sambas and wild party sones and cumbias, to wistful bossa novas and plaintive boleros. It is music for dancing and music for listening.

Maracuja was formed in Seattle during the summer of 2013 as a collaborative project of Caitlin Belem and Terrence Rosnagle. Separately, both had extensive experience with Brazilian and Latin music-- living, playing, and studying in countries including Brazil, Cuba, Argentina, and Spain. Maracuja has since grown as an established act that regularly plays some of Seattle's top venues, regional festivals, tours the Pacific Northwest and Mountain West, and is sought after for corporate events, academic performances, and private events.

Caitlin Belem grew up in a house full of music in Northern Wyoming, fell in love with the fiddle at a young age and continued learning-- singing and playing saxophone and guitar. She has explored many genres from Brazilian bossa nova and samba, Cuban son, traditional Basque music, to American jazz, blues, and swing. Aside from Maracuja, Caitlin sings and plays with Modern Bygones, Ospa! and various local and traveling musicians. She has performed everywhere from living rooms to 1200 seat concert halls to television programs from Barcelona to Brazil. Caitlin also teaches music through school programs, private lessons, workshops and summer camps.
