Cissa Paz with Rafael Pondé

Performance Information

This performance was originally scheduled for June 6 and has been rescheduled due to weather.

Join Washington Performing Arts and DowntownDC for this installment of the weekly DowntownDC Live outdoor concert series. Brazilian singer-songwriter Cissa Paz has made a name for herself in Washington, D.C. as an eclectic performer influenced by the local jazz sounds and her Brazilian, African, and Indigenous background. Nominated for 3 WAMMIES, Paz was born in Belgium and raised in Rio de Janeiro. She has released multiple albums and performs in Portuguese, Portuguese Creole, Spanish, French, and English.

This performance is part of Washington Performing Arts' global programming initiative, The World in Our City: Latinx in D.C., which provides perspective on what it means to be a citizen of the world through a unique arts-based lens.

This performance is funded in part by a grant from the Mayor’s Office on Latino Affairs (MOLA). 

Co-presented by DowntownDC and Mars Arts D.C., a project of Mars, Incorporated and Washington Performing Arts, generously supported by Jacqueline Badger Mars.
