Notas de 4 is Calgary’s original Latin Jazz ensemble, winner of the 2020 YYC Music Awards for “Best World Recording” and was nominated twice for “Global Artist of the Year” by the Western Canada Music Awards in 2021 and 2022. Recently, the group has released their second album, Cosas Maravillosas (Wonderful Things), with a SOLD-OUT show at the King Eddy on March 25 that was covered by CBC Alberta and Key of A.
The ensemble’s original compositions are inspired from Flamenco, Latin Jazz, and traditional music from Cuba and Mexico. The band released their first full-length album, Rosas y Lirios (Roses & Lilies), in September 2019, thanks to the help of Alberta Foundation for the Arts and FACTOR Canada.
Their performance has been described as intense, edgy, and dreamy; a reimagination of Latin music composed in a uniquely Canadian landscape.
The group has performed in notable sold-out stages including the Central Library by Jazz YYC, National Music Centre by Casa Mexico, Chinook Blast Festival, Arts Commons, ArtXpeditions, TEDxCalgary Talk Music, Lolita’s Lounge, Pro-Arts Noon Series, the Junction and Expo Latino, the Big Secret Theatre, and most recently, the 2022 Manitoba Showcase.
