There’s something different about how Detroit-based singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Marbrisa interprets music.

Latin, jazz, funk, and folk music come together on Marbrisa’s debut solo record, Ciclos, which finds the world traveler collaborating with her all-star eight-piece band — including Adam James, Tim Shellabarger, James Anthony, Dan Schmatz, Zac Land, Max Popkin, Jordan Mulka, and Emily Rose. Not unlike the transportive work of Brazilian sonic chameleon Seu Jorge or New York’s foot-stomping gypsy punks Gogol Bordello, Marbrisa also masters the art of fusing the traditional with the contemporary. Metro Detroit’s roots-folk songstress Libby Decamp is also on the bill.

Doors open at 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20, at Otus Supply; 345 E. Nine Mile Rd., Ferndale; 248-291-6160; otussupply.com. Tickets are $10-$12.
