Since their formation in 2007, Ampersan have been blending traditional Mexican and Latin American folk and classical music with a touch of modern psychedelia. With a sound that’s equal parts beautiful and haunting, the mesmerizing duo have two albums under their belts and have provided scores for numerous documentaries, animations and film shorts. Recently coming off of a featured spot at the Vive Latino 2016 music festival, Ampersan is embarking on a North American west coast tour that will bring them back through Portland for one night only (8/14) where we’re fortunate to have them grace the stage at Holocene. Joining them for the night is Portland born-and-raised singer-songwriter, poet and actor, Lo Steele, whose impressive neo-soul songs tackle issues of love, race, equality and forgiveness. Don’t miss this incredible night of music!
