Afro-Brazilian Berimbau

Thursday, August 22
10 – 11 a.m.
McGinley Pavilion

Arcomusical is an ensemble with a unique mission: reimagining the Afro-Brazilian berimbau through powerful chamber music. The ensemble commissions, collaborates, arranges, and composes new works that generate spellbinding and uniquely beautiful musical performances. Their repertoire ranges from solos to sextets to concerti. "Arcomusical doesn’t miss a beat. The ensemble is so tuned in to one another that at times it becomes difficult…to tell where one instrument ends and another begins. The players are so precise, so blissfully engaged with their instruments and one another that the individual pieces and the individual players melt away, and you begin to discover the uniquely captivating character of the instrument itself.” —Maggie Molloy, Second Inversion
