San Fran­cisco St.). Ca­sua­r­ina, hail­ing from the Lapa neigh­bor­hood of Rio de Janeiro, blends pop el­e­ments and tra­di­tional samba, per­form­ing both clas­sics and orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions. Brushy One String (born An­drew Chin) whet­ted his chops play­ing pans on the streets of Haiti as a young­ster but won renown singing and play­ing a gui­tar with just one string — one buzzy string. Michel is a pi­o­neer­ing woman of Caribbean mu­sic who syn­the­sizes jazz and tra­di­tional Haitian rhythms, singing in French, Haitian Cre­ole, and English.
