Trumpeter, percussionist and bandleader Etienne Charles was born in Trinidad and blends island rhythms with modern jazz. He and his stellar band perform live at The Hamilton in Washington D.C., a rich gumbo of jazz, calypso, reggae, and rock-steady that Charles calls “Creole Soul.”
Through the door and down the stairs, VOA's "The Hamilton Live" brings the audience along to a state-of-the-art music club, hidden just blocks from the White House in Washington, D.C.
Join us for intimate performances with musicians from every genre, including rock n' roll, rhythm-and-blues, gospel and bluegrass. Performers also share stories that inspire them and define their music. It's a 30-minute night out in the nation's capital, and an exclusive backstage pass to American music.
