Be Our Guest: Danilo Brito

Win tickets to see Danilo Brito at Kuumbwa on Monday, April 1

Mandolin Magazine once described Danilo Brito as “supremely gifted.” I know what you’re thinking right now: there’s a Mandolin Magazine? Yes, and in fact, when you watch Brito’s fingers fly across the mandolin fretboard like a wizard summoning lightning, you will understand why someone would sit down and devote a full hour to reading tales of the mandolin.

Brito plays Brazilian choro music, an instrumental music that goes back to the 1800s that has elements of jazz and blues, but has its own energetic vibe to it. This Be Our Guest package includes dinner as well as the show.

INFO: 6 p.m. Monday, April 1. Kuumbwa Jazz Center, 320-2 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $31.50 adv/$36.75 door. Information: kuumbwajazz.org.


Go to santacruz.com/giveaways before 11 a.m. on Monday, March 25, to find out how you could win a pair of tickets to the show.
