SAN FRANCISCO  •  Yoshi's San Francisco  •  Ongoing
Born on the island of Trinidad in 1983, the Julliard School alumnus virtuoso trumpeter Etienne Charles defies easy musical categorization.  Etienneís musical lineage runs at least four generations deep: His great-grandfather, Clement Monlouis, emigrated to Trinidad from the overseas French department of Martinique bringing his folk music to the village of Mayaro; The young trumpeterís grandfather, Ralph Charlesí distinct cuatro style can be heard on the classic folk and calypso recordings of the Growling Tiger; and, Etienneís father, Francis, was a member of Phase II Pan Groove, one of Trinidadís most progressive steel bands and one that Etienne himself would later join. Immersed in his fatherís vast record collection, and suffused with the sounds of calypso, steel pan, and African Shango drumming, Etienne imbibed many of the influences that presently constitute the diverse colors of his harmonic palette.
