DESEO CARMIN plays a sultry fusion of Latin, Jazz-Funk with the spice of flamenco. In other words, “Spanish music with an edge.” The band has been performing primarily in the Seattle area but their music has already transcended borders as far as Latin America, where they currently enjoy radio and television play in Paraguay and Chile.  Throughout the years, DESEO CARMIN has performed at several well-known venues such as Benaroya Hall, McCaw Hall, Broadway Center for the Performing Arts, and the Triple Door. They have performed at Seattle’s “Out to Lunch” concert series and played as a featured performer at the Seattle Latino Film Festival’s Opening Gala in 2017. Their music has been featured in local radio stations as well as NBC’s King 5, KCTS9, and the Seattle Channel’s “Art Zone.”

They are proud to have been recently nominated in the category of “Composer of the Year” at Univision’s 2018 Latin Music Awards. They had also been nominated for an award in the 2011 New Music Seminar, Artists on the Verge (AOV) project. AOV identifies the 100 artists most ready to break each year, and it’s a great achievement for DESEO CARMIN to have been nominated to this exclusive list from millions of artists throughout the U.S.

What is TEDx?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSeattle, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSeattle event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events, including ours, are self-organized.
