The Elsa Nilsson Quintet is throwing a benefit for Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue. The band is a tour de force, mixing personality and tradition to take the listener on a journey through sounds from Brazil, Cuba, Spain, Turkey, and the Baltic countries. Nilsson has built a solid career and reputation upon her belief that all folk music (including jazz) has a common thread, and that by weaving those threads together, a deeper, more layered understanding among varying cultures can be reached.
For this 45 minute show, 75% of proceeds will go to Badass.
