Hermeto Pascoal & Grupo at Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival on Friday, August 6, 2010

Posted on August 3, 2010

Hermeto Pascoal is a visionary and prolific Brazilian musician born in 1936 whose compositions and performances evade categorization. A multi-instrumentalist, often taking extremely unconventional instruments and techniques as a basis, Hermeto pursues jazz-based experimentalism, heightened by grace and whimsy. He began his career playing on recordings for now-prominent Brazilian groups, and went on to play with jazz figures such as Miles Davis, whose album Live-Evil introduced Pascoal to a larger audience.

Also on the bill, the boundary-pushing, inventive Brazilian body-percussion group Barbatuques, and also Michael Rothner and Friends perform the music of NEU!

Come early to catch Hermeto, first on the program!

The concert takes place at 7:30 pm at Damrosch Park Bandshell, between 62nd and 65th Streets and Broadway, New York City. More information. . .

    One correction; Barbatuques is not this night – they play as part of teh International Body Music Festival next Thursday, August 12.

    Tomorrow night, Asphalt Orchestra (who have a Tom Ze song in their repetroire), play at 7 pm around the Lincoln Center campus, then Hermeto at 730, and then Hallogallo.

    Thanks for spreading the word
