About Jamie:

Carving her name in the music scene as Sanfoneira or accordionist, Jamie Maschler is among Seattle’s few female lead instrumentalist. “Jamie Maschler, knows the versatility of the accordion better then most. She has played the instrument since she was four and spent years perfecting and competing with pieces by such challenging classical composers as Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. She has since discovered her love of the collaborative, rock and pop musical scene. Talents like her seem to be increasingly valuable. “ -The Atlantic

Maschler is lead accordionist for the band En Canto, Seattle’s only Brazilian forró group. Hot off the press Solto Por Jeri, their first full length album, is filled with wo-pop originals and reimagined classics. The album is a result of a month long exploration all seven members took to four states of Brazil last November. After visiting the mecca of forró, Ceará, the multi-ethnic, female-led seven-piece is able to captivate audiences with traditional and inspired forró.
