This event is 21 and over

More Info

Steve Jobs once said “You can only connect the dots looking backwards.” Whether you attribute it to serendipity (happy accident), epiphany (inspired thought), dumb luck or fate; happenstance is all around us. How has happenstance shaped your own life? What role does happenstance play in the creative process? Do we invite randomness into our work or try to avoid happenstance at all costs?

For Volume 26, we'll dive deep into the random moments —that when paired with hard work, creativity and desire— have led to some of Portland’s greatest outcomes and creative endeavors.

Gran Ritmos is proud to present a ZZK records showcase in celebration of their 10 year anniversary.

ZZK Records is set to turn 10 in 2018. What began as a weekly party in the underground Buenos Aires music scene has turned into nothing short of a musical revolution. The epicenter of the “Digital Cumbia” and “Folktronica” laboratories, ZZK Records is renowned for reviving South American sounds for the hyper connected 21st Century. With artists like Chancha Via Circuito, La Yegros, El Remolon and Frikstailers, to name a few, nothing has been the same since ZZK decided to bring their sounds out of the sweaty club nights and showcase it for the world, in albums, tours, videos and more.
