March 27, 2020

Denver-based LAPOMPE combines rustic gypsy swing with vintage blues and soulful originals to create a unique sound and style. The string quartet features two guitars, vocals, upright bass and violin and crafts a musical pulse brimming with energy. The band has been nominated by multiple publications for best jazz band on the front range and won the 2017 Producers Choice award at the Westword Music Showcase. Recently relocating to Denver, Michele Castro hails originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. As vocalist and guitarist, she began to play internationally when invited to perform two tours of Germany with a Choro/Samba band as lead singer. Michele is proud to say she grew up in the Rocinha favela where she draws much of her musical inspiration and appreciation. Her vocal repertoire includes Samba, Bossa Nova, Brazilian Pop & Rock, MPB (Musica Popular Brasileira), Choro and Forró but she also plays a variety of Brazilian percussion instruments.
